Episode 1 - Geoff Stairs
Welcome to Tell Me Something! Last August, I hosted a storytelling event that went by two different names. The first was Storytellers Anonymous because it was the first thing I could think of. I later came up with Tell Me Something and I liked it a lot more, because A) there was nothing anonymous about it, and B) it put the onus on someone to share something about him or herself.
I thought it would translate well to an interview series, and I've always wanted to produce my own audio work. It's super DIY, and I hope to master the mixing end of things eventually. The sound works, and it isn't grating, so that's a win.
Geoff was the perfect candidate for the first episode because he was in the same position I am currently in; new place, no job, uncertainty all around. He is an ace photographer, musician, and artistic mind. This is the current conceit of the show, but over time things change. I hope to have more in the near future.
I edited and recorded the show. Special thanks to Geoff Stairs for being a great sport and for producing the music we heard at the top and bottom of the episode. If you want to follow Geoff on Twitter, check him out @g_allenstairs.
