Wikipedia Weekly podcast interview edit

Hello there, I was wondering if you would be interested in coming on the Podcast Wikipedia weekly to do an interview? I try to do an interview episode every now and then with different people (aprox 40 minutes long) talking about their experiences on wiki and generally humanising the community. Would you be interested in recording - talking about wikinews (and its relationsip to WP, where most of the listenership of the podcast comes from), the maori WP and maybe things like ORTS etc.

We record via Skype so you would need that programme, broadband connection, and a headset microphone. I'm in Sydney so if you're in NZ the time difference shouldn't be a problem. If you're up for it, and happen to see this message, today would be a good day for me to do this, otherwise, in the new year.

Best, Witty lama on en:wp

Several others wrote stories based on television sources. The Wikinews Reports blog activity was mostly related to some of these stories. You can ask any of the blog authors if you want to help out on the blog.
