Halloween Podcast with Hudson School Podcast Class

Podcasting Class is underway at the Hudson School We’re learning the basics.  Getting use to talking to anyone, at any time about anything. Using the Microphone properly. Forming questions while still trying to be conversational. This is our first project and its not perfect.  We have mic levels all over the place as the kids learn placement for themselves and the people they’re interviewing and some IPhone recording quality is also an issue. But that’s what the class is about, figuring out all the little things that go into making a podcast and we’re just talking vocals. I hope to...

Raising 911 Babies

I really struggled with this one. Teresa Cunningham is a 911 widow. Her son was 13 days old on the day her husband was killed on the 84th floor of the twin towers. Her challenges as a mom are monumental. Her son is going into high school and he has spent a lifetime wondering who his dad was and the trying to process the gravity of the day that forever changed his life and his moms. So I have decided to run the interview in its entirety, rather than try and edit it down into the perfect length for a...

New Exhibit at 911 Museum : Artists Respond To 911

I have a lump in my throat so big I can hardly swallow and tears well up in my eyes as I take the escalator down to Foundation Hall for a press preview of a new exhibit entitled “Rendering the Unthinkable” Artists Respond to 911.’’ I am with a group of reporters being escorted to Foundation Hall by elevator and our guide asks if we’ve been here before. Our response is a collective mutter to the affirmative. We pass by the mangled fire truck from Ladder Company 3 and moments later a cameraman whispers, “it’s still weird to come down...
