With some of our student listeners looking for work, I thought this would be a good episode to provide guidance should any of them wish to do freelance work.
Pete talked about his freelancing career and provided instructive examples from work he’s done, including a recent Q&A with former Super Bowl-winning coach Tom Coughlin, as well as feature profiles, movie reviews, oral histories, and his book on the growth of the NBA, From Hang Time To Prime Time.
Pete provided examples on how to handle idea generation, pitching, question writing, and organization, as well as overarching advice for aspiring freelancers.
Pete’s salute: Parker Molloy
