AFP-CAST: AFP & MISSY HIGGINS TALK MOTHERHOOD in MELBOURNE
*POWERED BY PATRONS*
I’ve always wanted to fire up a podcast, so this is a humble attempt to begin.
all of this is being funded by my patreon, as with everything lately, so if you’re a patron: THANK YOU!!! you made this happen.
on sunday, January 15th at 11 am, missy higgins (an extraordinary australian songwriter) and i got together in The Astor Theatre in Melbourne and talked about what was on our minds regarding motherhood and life..and we played some music. missy is an amazing person, and we found a ton of common ground, i could have talked to her for hours and hours – it felt like we were just getting going. note to self: the next time i podcast, leave four hours to talk. and maybe don’t do it at 11 am – who does ANYTHING at 11 am?
i figured this was going to be a good enough discussion to try to capture and podcast…so i hired a small audio and editing crew and WE DID IT. the room audio is a little shaky, but we tried our best. additional talking was recorded in the astor theater bathroom (not kidding, it was the only quiet space after the event) and then i did a few vocal overdubs.
here we are, after the gig.
thank you for listening !
i found there was a huge learning curve with podcasting – and i can’t wait to do more.
