On Wednesday, February 24 from 4:00-5:30, Dr. Chioke I'Anson and the Institute for Contemporary Art will present Skill Share II: The Art of the Interview. Most podcasts feature interviews with people who share their expertise or experiences. A good interview can make a podcast memorable and shareable. But how can you, as a host, get the most out of your guest? In this session, Chioke Iā€™Anson, Ph.D., VPM + ICA Community Media Center's director of community media, will share the best practices for interviewing that he's learned from years in public media.
