Watch drummer and electronic producer Shigeto play a set in NPR’s studios, and talk about how performing live makes him feel like Tony Hawk. It’s part of Intern Edition, a show completely written, reported and produced by NPR’s youngest and brightest.
So, today on our Twitter (@NPRinterns), we challenged the PBS interns to a public broadcasting softball throwdown (in which we will be victorious). Also, DJ Kitty of the Tampa Bay Rays (see above video) tried to start a beef with our Intern Edition cat. All in a day’s work?
From Weekend Edition, Saturday intern Devon Kodzis: “It’s really important to pronounce all words correctly in radio programming. Sometimes before I get ready to do a pre-interview, I check my pronunciations. This is a really useful tool.”
Today in “Meet the Intern,” we share a video, courtesy of All Things Considered, Opinions intern Gavin Bade. Gavin is studying Culture & Politics and Education Policy at Georgetown University. Here’s what he has to say:
“This is ‘Who’s Blues?’, which I always thought was ‘Whose Blues?’. It’s our band from back in Michigan called Tessa Perez and Hats. This is a song by Ms. Perez herself. As much as I’d like to claim otherwise, I have precious little to do with the creative process here. I’m just the Bari guy on the end. But I wanna spread the love for my friends because I think they’re great. Enjoy!”
