I just did my first Radio Interview with ABC Canberra 666


ABC logoI did my first radio interview today and it was a wonderful experience.

I was interviewed by Genevieve Jacobs. I really did not know what to expect, but she was really nice talking to me before the interview saying things like “Don’t worry if you make a mistake”

And asking me lots of little easy questions. I found I got used to talking to her and I felt comfortable.

Genevieve JacobsDuring the real interview she started asking me my personal opinions and I felt excited that she was really interested in what I thought.

It was fun to know that my petition was taking off and the radio interview was going to get more support in the city of the airport.

After the call finished Genevieve chatted with me some more and I knew she was really kind then.

I liked how she laughed and I felt she really enjoyed talking to me.

Listen to my interview.

An expert’s opinion

Then there was a second interview.

Geoffrey ThomasUp until now I have not heard from experts about my idea, so I was interested to hear Aviation expert Geoffrey Thomas’ opinion. He liked my idea which was great.

Listen to his interview.

I really don’t mind hearing people that disagree with me. Before they disagree all I ask is that they first watch my video on David Warren.

I hope you enjoyed listening to my interview and you will sign my petition to have this great man remembered.

Genevieve has also written a nice article about our interview.

    Well done, Eve. We signed your petition and are supporting your idea from all the way in Arizona (USA).

    Hi Eve!

    I’m not sure if you remember Hege and me – but we sure do remember you and Ruby from visting you guys in Sydney back in 2008!

    Your school project on David Warren is an amazing piece of work – me and Hege just watch the whole video. Given how talented you already are I’m sure you will reach your goal mentioned in the blog headline – becoming a 60 minuttes journalist!

    I have signed the petition, and will encourage my friends to do the same. Wish you good luck the the petition – fingers crossed they will listen.

    Also – hope to see the Cogan family again in not too long – we really do miss Australia.

    – Jonas & Hege

    Hi Jonas
    Thank you for watching my video and voting on my petition. Of course I remember you. I also remember your girlfriend Hege and her dreadlocks and I am sorry that my little sister vomited on her.
    Did you hear the expert, Geoffrey Thomas speak above? He liked my idea too.
