Into It: Interviews With Work


Available on Amazon.

Recorded interviews that took place in 1994. Deciding to do this was just one of those crazy things: you get an idea and for some reason, get excited about doing it. When I think about it, it’s not really all that strange an idea, not for someone like me who is just curious about, well, many things. It was an excuse to meet some very interesting people and to poke into their lives. Just between you and me, doesn’t that sound great? Only thing, it took a lot of work.

Transcribing spoken words from recordings at that time was arduous – no speech recognition software – just a foot pedal on a tape playback machine. Tape? What’s that? Spending two weeks of a summer vacation listening to recorded interviews – sloooowly. It was worth it.
