I’m slowly falling into a habit of having half-quasi-semi summer internships. Continuing in that tradition, Thomas Leonard, a senior at Mizzou, is spending some time in the office this summer in order to develop some NPR-inspired story telling skills. Continuing in the more-established traditions of “Do!” I just kicked him out the door on his first day – May 31st – with a microphone and recorder telling him to make piece about Memorial Day since it was just the day before.
It was his first ever attempt at both recording and at editing. I think he did an excellent job, even not considering it as a first-run. Take a listen and let us know what you think.[audio:https://www.brainroot.tv/wp-content/audio/Z11_memorialday.mp3]
