But we have a quandary: we’ve been deliberating over the best and most convenient means of delivering the interview to you, but there are pros and cons to each. That is where you come in.
We’ve identified the following possible means to ensure that everyone who wants to has a chance to hear the interview and want to know what you would prefer:
Full-Length Interview Posted Online
We can post the full-length interview so that you can listen to it from a link available online.
PROS: You can listen to the full-length interview in the comfort of your own home, at your convenience.
CONS: Being 40 minutes in length, it means a commitment of time for you to sit in front of your computer to listen to the audio.
Interview Snippets Posted Online
We can break down the interview into more digestible pieces (5-8 minutes in length) and post them in succession.
PROS: Not as big of a time commitment to listen to the whole interview at once.
CONS: Losing continuity of the conversation we shared.
Mailing a Full-Length CD
We have burned several copies of the interview to CD and would be happy to mail them to you.
PROS: You have a hard copy of the interview for yourself so you can hear our voices whenever you please!
CONS: Time and expense. We’ll have to collect everyone’s names and addresses, so there will be a bit of a wait as we collect this information and mail it to you.
So now it’s your turn to provide us with some input! You’ll notice that at the top of the sidebar at the right, there’s a poll where you can choose which means you would prefer. Feel free to leave any additional comments or ideas in the comments section of this post. Please provide your input by 6 p.m. (PST) on Monday, February 11.
We are really thrilled to be able to share this with you! Thanks for helping us determine how we can best accomplish this. We will certainly do our best to ensure it is as convenient and accessible as possible for everyone.
