Well, I followed my own advice last night and headed down to the French Quarter, found some strangers, and struck up a few conversations with them. I have to tell you, it was some of the most fun I have had in New Orleans. Before I went down, though, I thought it might be cool to record the conversations so you could listen in. So I did! And I went one step further, as well. I turned them into a podcast.
It’s called Visiting With Visitors and I’ll be releasing new content when I can, but I am hoping to get a new episode out once per week. It is currently in the approval process on iTunes, Google Play, etc. but you can listen to it now by clicking HERE. You can also check out the Facebook page HERE.
Here’s the podcast description:
Visiting with Visitors is a podcast in which Trevor Scott, a New Orleans Tour Guide, strikes up conversations with complete strangers who are visiting New Orleans. There is minimal editing done to this podcast so as to preserve the conversation’s authenticity and energy. Recording these conversations is not a sterile experience. They recorded on the street with a simple microphone, so expect to hear some of the lively sounds of New Orleans in the background.
And that’s it! I have one episode up right now titled Kareem and Erin, and there will be more to come soon. I would love to get any feedback anyone might have, so please comment below with your thoughts. Thank you!
