Whew! We had an interesting trip. We picked up our photog Andrew in St. Louis. In the process we got turned around in St. Louis, which made us late for Dr. Ayoub. I felt horrible. We have been pretty good about staying on time so far with all this traveling. This was the first time we got lost. It happens and Dr. Ayoub was so kind and still let us interview him.
The interview went well. I tried to focus as best as I could but I was worried about us being late. I got through all my questions. It was fine in the end.
We interviewed Ayoub at the hospital. We have had wireless mic issues in hospitals. I think it has to do with radio waves and machines. So we used the lav cable mic. It is frustrating at times. I love t.v. and visually showing something to the viewer, but in order to do that well....means a lot of work.
Dr. Ayoub gave us great insight on money issues. He will be used for the investigative part of the series. To top it all off, Dr. Ayoub also had a cold at time. However, we all pulled it together and had a great interview session.
I think the best part of the interview was when he responds to his critics and tells me why he fights for what he believes and what his research says.
I can't wait to show you the rest.
