It’s every interviewer’s nightmare, getting the exclusive interview, spending 45 minutes with the talent only to discover you forgot to press ‘Record’.
On Friday during GOLD 104.3’s The Christian O’Connell Show, Jack Post told the story about how he recently made the ultimate mistake when doing an interview with Amy Shark.
Jack did a one-page pitch to Sony Music to land a 45-minute interview with Amy Shark for his podcast ‘Jacky Road Studios’ and only realised at the end of the recording that he never pressed record.
Christian told his story about the time he interviewed Ricky Gervais and also forgot to hit record, saying that Ricky cried during the in-depth hour-long interview and told Christian it was his favourite interview he’d ever done.
Christian said whenever he interviews Ricky and the first thing Ricky asks is “are you recording this”.
