The Zach Bussey Show is a weekly uncensored podcast that we broadcast from Shoeless Joe’s, however, what my cohost Meg Button and I have been discussing lately is to do “Zach Bussey Show Bites”, which will be short 10-15 minute shows that are hyper focused on a single topic and will be PG rated. This mini episode will be the first of its kind!
To give you some context, I’m in a competition to be a blogger for @TheBiLLe, an international lottery which has a huge charitable component to it. Right now, they are running their Celeb Charity Challenge. People submit a Charity along with a Celebrity name who supports that charity. Voting occurs, and each week one person’s selection wins. The BiLLe arranges for the person who submitted the name/charity to meet the actual celebrity for a cheque presentation to the charity of 10,000 EUROs. Pretty awesome right?!
As part of the blogger competition, my task was to interview a charity of my choice. With only 72 hours to find, interview and edit a video… the task was tough. But the Sick Kids Foundation was so incredible and immediately arranged an interview with Colin Hennigar, Associate Director of Major Gifts. While the video submission had to be around 4 minutes, the interview overall went 10, so I’m posting the audio as a podcast!
