In 2006 I started a radio show called Internet Links. The radio station was an online radio in Romania, called Radio Lynx, so this is where the name comes from.
What started as a weekly 30 minutes show with interesting stuff happening online, from news to howtos, ended 6 years later with more than 100 episodes of 2 hours interviews. About 3-4 shows in I realised it was much more interesting to talk to people about their online projects. After that, about 10 shows in I understood that I needed more than 1 hour and I cut all the music I had from time to time. The guys at Radio Lynx were really nice and understanding and adjusted their Wednesday evening schedules (8pm) to give me those 2 hours.
That show connected me to most of the people doing anything relevant online at that point in Romania and even outside of it. But more than this, I loved talking to my guests. I loved finding out more about their projects, I loved asking “stupid” questions and getting unexpected answers.
I was always a curious person and these interviews fulfilled that need.
Today I just interviewed someone again. Not about business online this time, but about something I was interesting in finding out more since hearing about the concept the first time. I won’t tell you what yet, because I will publish that interview some time soon.
I was just thinking that after about 1h30’ of talking, I finished the interview energized, smiling and remembering how much I loved this. Amazing!
