Request for Interview
« on: November 27, 2014, 04:54:36 PM »
Hello, I am a tenth grade student working on a research paper about the different perspectives about the Flat Earth Theory. I was hoping that I could interview a member of The Flat Earth Society via Skype.

Bad idea Tom.  If he posts the questions here, he's going to get a debate, not an interview.  PMing the questions would be a much better idea.

Posting questions gets answers. Pushing agendas get debates.

The class requires interviews to be real voice interviews.

How about you ask the questions and we'll record the answers?

I'm okay with doing it live, but I'm kinda busy for the foreseeable future. What's the latest you need this done by?

I can post the questions before the live interview if that is the worry. Would that be better for someone?

That would be convenient, but in my case it's really just the lack of time. I could probably do something this weekend if that works for you.

That sounds great! What is your Skype name or email address? Also do you mind if I record the conversation to look back on for reference? Thanks.

I set up a new Skype account named pizaaplanet. I'd rather not disclose an e-mail address if you don't mind - you can always send me a private message through here.

Also, I don't mind being recorded as long as you agree for me to record the conversation too.
