10 minutes with... Laurence Kain

In a nerve wracking venture out of our comfort zone we’re kicking off an interview series called “10 minutes with… ”

The pilot for these was shot on Tuesday with Laurence Kain and we talked about his adventures with rock climbing, Honkytonks, and the Foreshore Festival.

Many thanks to King O’Malleys for the use of their room and contentgroup for taking care of the video production.

If you know of someone you’d like to see interviewed in this format (or maybe I should be talking to you) let us know. We shoot ten minutes we use ten minutes, easy in easy out.

(And before anyone starts:
— Yes I know I need to dial back the sleep function on phone so as to avoid fiddling with the thing when using it as a timer.
— Indeed, this is a bit of an unwelcome exploration of my freakishly shaped head.
— I’m more aware than anyone of the failings of my interview technique
That said I think it’s come out as a worthwhile exercise)

Any chance of another 10 minute interview?

Relax about the head JB…yours is very normal compared to a few that I’ve seen. 🙂

And, as my mythical kind aunt says; ‘It’s what’s inside that counts.’ Comforting, hm?

I enjoyed this interview, and had the impression you might know Laurence personally. If not, you project warmth almost too well!

Nicely done. Having never seen you in person, you have a nice head.

What about the little elderly lady who runs the soup kitchens for the homeless, they used to have a van in Garema Place?

Or Peter Slipper

Good, informative interview. BTW I am interested in purchasing Laurence Kain’s rock climbing wall. Please pass my email on to him, cheers.

10 minutes with Owen Campbell please…

This is really good.
How about 10 mins with Andrew Lock, (when he gets back from whatever mountain he’s climbing at the moment)

Brian Schmidt would be good too. If it got a bit too astrophysical, you could lead him on to wine.

… where he demos his cat-fighting equipment. A winner.

By the way, really like the idea.

Robyn Archer might be interesting.

Good on you for taking the plunge … your head doesn’t look anywhere as freakish as it does IRL 😉

10 minutes with Jeff Manny would be a hoot.

10 minutes with… Maurizio Rao, please.

I reckon you should speak to Monir Farhadi. Fly fisher extraordinaire. Local Canberra cult celebrity. You probably already know him.
