Me as an interviewee

I attended SciTalk 2018 this year in Portland, Oregon. It was a lot of fun! I learned a great deal from the experts and professionals who shared their knowledge and wisdom!

I attended a workshop run by Abby Olena that included a discussion on best practices when being interviewed. I volunteered to be the first interviewee; watch below!

The main suggestions I received afterward:

  • To start with my answer to “why should we care” : Because there are chemicals in space, and we need to be able to see them!
  • To start with a hook, something that catches the audience’s attention

(Also, I blink a lot more than I would think!)

What do you think? Do you have more suggestions for me? Share them below!
