This bonus episode of Inside Podcasting is all the good stuff from Skye’s interview with Everything is Alive (everythingisalive.com) creator Ian Chillag that didn’t make it into the full episode from last August. The episode is divided into two parts: the first illuminates a bit more about Ian’s background — and contains some juicy bits about what he learned about interviewing from Fresh Air’s Terry Gross — and the second reveals a few more behind-the-scenes details regarding how Ian makes his show. Enjoy! If you haven’t listened to Skye’s original interview with Ian, you can find that here: http://insidepodcasting.libsyn.com/everything-is-alive-podcast-ian-chillag ----- Inside Podcasting is produced and hosted by Skye Pillsbury.

An incredible interview takes any topic and turns it into gripping listening by finding the humanity at the heart of the story. It’s not always easy. In Everything is Alive, Ian Chillag flirts with fact and fiction, and manages to find the moment of connection in every interview. Even when his interviewees are inanimate objects like a can of cola, or a bath towel.You can find the transcript here. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
