Hey beautiful people!
Check it out!
Jacquie is an incredible human with a real talent for storytelling and storylistening. After the recording in studio, we talked about how the job of an interviewer is to be a conduit for story––not to interrupt the flow but to be there to redirect and keep a storyteller on course, if needed.
Water weaves through language in the most beautiful / surprising ways.
Later in the afternoon we meandered to the top of a mountain to see the Fitzroy River, a ribbon of gold from above.
It was lovely to see the inner-workings of the ABC studio, to learn about storytelling in the public broadcasting world (Jacquie, can I be you when I grow up?), and to be on the other side of the microphone for a change.
For folks in Central Queensland, there’s a listing of ABC Radio frequencies here. Otherwise you can listen to Jacquie’s many interviews online at: http://www.abc.net.au/capricornia/programs/capricornia_breakfast/
Long live public radio & the art of storytelling.
Love and light,
