recently, i received a message from Simon Welebil, who works for austrian radiostation FM4, asking if i was interested in giving an interview about my all-female-shred-blog mizzi.at - i didn’t take me long to make a decision, of course i wanted to be part of it.
a few days later, Simon and i met up at karlsplatz, which is conveniently situated for both of us, right in the middle between FM4 and my workplace.
we sat down near the fountain and talked a bit, before Simon started recording the interview. it was a nice conversation and i’m pretty happy with how the interview turned out.
a small part of it was broadcasted in the FM4 morning show on the 11th of may, the longer part could be heard in connected on the same day.
an article about mizzi.at can be found on the FM4 website: http://fm4.orf.at/stories/1717490/
