On April 22, 2013, Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz published the 700th episode of The Hobson and Holtz Report, the weekly business podcast covering the intersection of business, communication and technology that the pair started in January 2005.
To mark the milestone episode Canadian podcaster, FIR friend and long-time listener Donna Papacosta interviewed Shel and Neville a few days before the 700th episode.
The idea for such an interview originated in the Google+ FIR Community when Max Christian Hansen posted a call to action by FIR listeners to “help create FIR 700″ and post questions for Shel and Neville.
Recently, some of us in the FIR community were delighted to learn a little bit about our Asia correspondent +Michael Netzley. When he talked with +Dan York, we heard some history of his professional and personal interests. It’s occurred to some of us that we’d like gain similar insight into our hosts.
The result of that call to action is this interview in which the FIR co-hosts answer listeners’ questions on topics that include what’s allowed each of them to stay dedicated to FIR over the years, their proudest moments from 700 episodes, how hosting FIR has led to business opportunities, which episode they would archive for historical posterity, and more.
A short clip from the interview was included in FIR #700.
Our thanks to Max for suggesting the idea, to our listeners who responded to the call with their questions, and to Donna for her consummate professionalism in interviewing us.
