Tahsan Scott is today’s focus of our “Meet the Intern” feature. A recent University of Nevada, Las Vegas graduate, Tahsan is the summer audio engineering intern, and acts co-music editor and associate technical director of Intern Edition.
Best way to spend an evening in DC? Happy hour with NPR interns, followed by any live music event (perhaps Jazz in the Garden at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden), and attempting to get home via any combination of bus, Metro, taxi, or foot.
What was your reaction when you found out you were offered the NPR internship? I got freakin’ lucky. I was 1/60 people who applied for my position, and somehow got chosen. I immediately called my aunt in DC and told her I was coming to stay.
What’s your favorite thing about interning at NPR? I get to write about music, and I get to learn a ton from the other interns (who are hella cool) and staff members. Plus, I get to boast that I work at NPR. I think the discount at Taylor’s sandwich spot is a close second though!
What’s your ringtone? Generic AT&T ringtone…I should probably change it. Maybe to “Drop” by Chester French.
Favorite season? Summertime — nothing like warm nights to compliment good company and cold drink. Also it’s the best time for outdoor concerts.
What’s the last good book you read? Currently reading “Here Come the Regulars” by Ian Anderson. It is a how-to guide on running a record label on a small budget.
What’s the best thing you’ve done this year? Interning at NPR, hands down!
Favorite meal? Psh, too many to name. Sushi? Fettuccine Alfredo? Steak au poivre with mashed potatoes? Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles Scoe’s #1?
Favorite TV show? I love No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain. I want his job (and I use that term loosely, because all he does is eat and drink) when he dies.
