Thanks to Gail Zahtz, I’ve discovered the radio blog. For anybody who isn’t familiar with the technology (I wasn’t until a few weeks ago), it’s set up like a phone call. The person being interviewed calls in and the conversation is presented live on-line so people can call in with questions. It’s also saved for people to listen to later. The only equipment you’ll need is a land-line telephone. You call in, and I handle the rest.
I know two hours sounds like a long time. If you can’t actually squeeze two consecutive hours out of your busy schedule, I understand. We can talk for as long as you like. If you’re anything like me, talking about your loved one comes easy, and the time will fly.
If people are interested, I can also feature photos of you and your family and maybe an intro type piece to go with the interview.
I was amazed at how much I learned from Gail’s week long program (4 interviews) about the #JusticeForEthan movement. With October just around the corner, what better way to promote “awareness” than by telling our stories? How much can we help each other by talking about our successes and failures so we can learn from each other? What can we do to help each other reach our goals for the future?
I'm open to schedule one interview a day for the whole month – but it would depend on how many people are interested. If you’d be wiling to participate, send me a comment or email and I’ll try to answer any questions you might have beforehand. Scheduling will be on a first-come first-serve basis. You pick the day and time.
Please share this invitation with anyone you know who might want to chat. I think this could be an opportunity for us to do something different and really meaningful for Down syndrome awareness!
