Quality Time with… Ilana, Ep. #12

IlanaToday I chat with a fellow traveler and someone else bitten by the learning-bug: Ilana Fayerman.

I met Ilana where many people congregate in Manhattan: at the theatre. We were both waiting for friends associated with the play we had just seen and I struck up a conversation; I think we talked nonstop for an hour, about where we’d been, what we’re up to, and what we’re excited about – it was fantastic!

She’s such a vibrant, smart, and funny individual, and I am thrilled I had the chance to meet her. Luckily, we were able to find another time to sync up and have this chat!

What we talked about:

  • the excitement behind non-fiction stories
  • how small the world’s getting and connecting with anyone
  • her daily Jeopardy ritual
  • the power of deliberate and slow speech

Enjoy!

More on Ilana you might dig:

  • IlanaFayerman.com: learn more about what she does and even see clips of her in action, including an interview with Desmond Tutu – sweet! :-)
  • Watson on Jeopardy: you can read all about Watson here, and you can even watch a short video over here.

 

What’s your takeaway from the chat with Ilana?

I’d love to hear your answer and any other comments you have.

Until next time,

Nathan

    Nathan, This interview was great. I can attest to the fact that Ilana is, indeed, one of the non-stoppingest awesome people on this earth. What you are doing here is incredibly awesome as well, and I look forward to reading and seeing more. (Wish I’d thought of it first.) ;)
