Just posted the latest podcast for Capers Community Markets. It was quite challenging to record, and I opted for a shotgun mic on a stick (film style) so I could work the room.
The event was The Capers Community Café, an innovative way of approaching a discussion about health. Its free to attend, and Capers brings in its group of health professionals called the Capers Integrated Health Network. They span a variety of disciplines, and having five or six of them in the room together is a real bonus.
But it gets better. Instead of using a top-down approach, or a panel discussion, Capers uses the community café scenario to engage everyone in a conversation.
What it means is that the whole room gets into small pockets of conversation on a variety of topics related to the subject at hand. In this case, the subject was stress.
The process was really intrigueing to watch – and super hard to document – but I think it worked out ok.
You can grab the podcast here, or from the Caper’s RSS feed.
Recorded on location at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Vancouver.
