One of my surprises was having to adjust from a lecture format to a media format on both TV and radio. I found this to be both a challenging and delightful experience. Most profs don’t do pithy. But with only three minutes on Macon, GA TV interview, I really needed to compress my message–not easy but doable, and a good challenge. I’m grateful for some school kids in the audience. I also learned that I need to focus more on the camera and less on the interviewer. The give and take in radio was more casually paced, but also lively in its own way. The interviewer, the son of the station’s owner, had a down home intelligence and winsome personality that brought out the best in use with jokes, humorous images and, yet, lots of good information. So far, this has been a remarkable experience. We enjoyed learning about the University of Georgia at Griffin, an agricultural research college that had a delightful garden, that Linda and I visited, with lots of wonderful bird songs in the sunshine.
