Welcome to the limited series return of BETWEEN THE PAGES, running Mondays and Wednesdays now through mid-December 2020! Dubbed BETWEEN THE PAGES: FINDING MY VOICE, follow Shannon’s journey as she learned and grew to become more of a public speaker, and how she’s still learning today! Today is Installment 15, “My First Podcast”.
As you’ve read in prior installments, I’d spent a lot of time on the convention circuit on panels or moderating them. However, 2007 would also bring me into a new arena of communicating with others. I don’t remember how I found the opportunity exactly, but I ended up making the connections to get booked on a podcast called CATCH DA CRAZE hosted by Samuel Vera. While the main part of the discussion focused around GARDNER’S GUIDE TO WRITING AND PRODUCING ANIMATION, we also spent a lot of time about my background and how I got into writing and animation to begin with.
I appeared on episode 94 of the podcast series, and only recently got to hear it again today when Samuel Vera and his new host – now doing a revived version – re-uploaded my original episode online. Listening to myself years and years ago reminds me of the enthusiasm and eagerness I’ve had all these years for my love of animation.
In the process of trying to locate my original episode, I made contact with the current hosts and there’s looking like there may be a real possibility of my appearing on the show again in the near future. I’m looking forward to catching folks up on over a decade of my adventures for the listening audience.
Check back for the next installment, as my appearances at conventions continue into 2008.
