Lisa Fischer


Why would anyone start a podcast with all the competition that exists? Well, I'm that person who is going to take a stab at it. I'm a longtime broadcaster; I have interviewed thousands of people since the mid 1980s when I began working as a radio/tv journalist and broadcaster. I was either sent on a story and told to "bring back some sound," that's TV talk for audio, or I was interviewing people for a radio show I hosted (the Lisa Fischer Show), I was still asking the questions I was expected to ask. So now it's my turn. Interviewing the people I want to interview and asking the questions I want to ask. You see, I have snobby ears. I don't always think podcasters do a great job on their podcasts, which of course they will say about mine. But mine is going to be unique to me, representing the way I interview. You'll either like it or you won't. Either way, give it a listen and leave a review. Here is the lineup.
