Ah, episode 2 happened! Jason began the episode by talking about the American Federation of Aviculture’s convention and all of the participants, and events that happened. I personally cannot wait to be able to attend next year. The convention is in Connecticut and should be an amazing time, had by all.
We were very excited to get Parrot Nation’s, Bird Channel’s and birds.about.com’s own Patricia Sund for Episode 2 of From The Perch – Aviculture Today. Jason has known Patricia for about 20 years and I have had her as a colleague in this crazy world of aviculture for about five years, so needless to say, we had a lot to talk about. Firstly I can tell you, we had a ton of fun doing the interview and if we would have had more time, I am sure it would have gone on for hours. We can genuinely suck up the oxygen in a room.
Editing for the episode was fairly quick, I wanted to make sure the commercials were ready and it all go edited pretty quickly. To be honest, because I was so damn excited about having Patricia on and the chemistry of the three of us. It was exactly the show I wanted, nothing stuffy, just three friends sitting around talking about the things they love. I really thing it translated as that.
I have to say there is a certain freedom in recording a podcast. The level of communication increases for me, and I am allowed to introduce my tones and true personality into topics we are discussing. Where as with writing, it can get lost in translation at times. I do try to write very conversationally and pretty close to how I speak, but again you can’t insert inflection and tone into words on a page.
I am so happy and excited about From The Perch, we have taken an idea and come to a new and exciting medium for the newest generations of companion bird lovers and also brought our devoted and experienced owners along for the ride. From The Perch is not a show just about one person’s ideas and agendas, it’s about a collaborative effort of two people who have many opposing views, coming together as an example of how differences of opinion shouldn’t matter in the end, because it’s the birds that matter the most.
