This email from Renee Adolph

My back window faces a national forest (USA, Arizona) that was once lush with Ponderosa Pines until the Rodeo-Chediski fire of 2002 transformed it into a prairie…a beautiful prairie. This summer, that landscape is a blanket of small yellow sunflowers. Here’s my question. The flowers are always facing me.(east) (It’s a little unnerving – as though they’re an audience waiting for me to step out on my porch and entertain them!) Seriously though, they are not sun tracking – perhaps they did earlier in the summer; but, now their faces droop perenially to the east. Do you know why?

Now into episode 8 of The Sodcast, I thought it a good time to test the water with something a little different.

I bounced it around with others of the podcasting fraternity on maybe bringing some guests in and whilst the response was very much 50:50, there really is only one way to find out…..

Introducing Shawna Coronado

I called Shawna yesterday to see how she was getting on and more importantly to give you a little taste of just what you can expect to hear on Thursdays Sodcast. Take a listen…

Why A Guest and why Shawna…?

...

I rang Shawna, a person I had interviewed twice before for the blog, admittedly the first time it was audio-less but with whom, both of us will agree, that between us the conversation seems to us, to flow relatively easy.  The video below explains that maybe a little better….

I’m not to sure how well this will work and so and as always I will base that factor upon your responses on the iTunes Sodcast page. Maybe, that’s not the route some would take, but so far so good and 20 ratings and 15 comments later – 90% are 5 star ratings and the comments are very encouraging….

The guests will vary from week to week and will return again, for now and to start with, a nice round of applause for Shawna.

Visit the sodcast podcast page on iTunes – leave a comment and let me know what you think and I’ll talk to you next Thursday 😉

Shawna Coronado @ bloom 2010

...

I had interviewed and reviewed Shawna’s book before. I knew from some time back that she was on her way to Dublin for Bloom 2010 so we had this interview lined up a long time before hand.

Naturally and of course, there was an evening were a few of us met up for some refreshments in Dublin City Centre. It goes with the turf 😉

That aside, I tried to leave the interview uncut as best as possible. And on a serious note, Shawna is a true lady. It was an absolute honour to finally meet and chat with her in person. More than that, I’m a big believer in that that she believes in and speaks so energetically on the subject of.

Take a look and see how we got on 😀
