It’s not often you talk to someone you grew up watching on Television and in most cases it won’t be for a interview for your podcast. Earlier today I spoke to John Burgess and to many of my generation he is a unknown, I grew up watching Wheel of Fortune and Catch Phrase and always admired his hosting skills. He continues to work in radio racking up more than 40 years behind the microphone.
It was not my best performance but it’s hard to conduct an interview when you want to sit back and enjoy the stories and information from the interviewee. Overall I have to say it was enjoyable albeit a little awkward.
You can hear the interview with John Burgess on The Ploy with Ben and Mike.
