Random Shorts 2022: Lori and Hector, enjoying the Happy Crowd's Last Concert

Random Shorts 2022: Lori and Hector, enjoying the Happy Crowd's Last Concert

During the year, the hardworking staff at Claremont Speaks sometimes ventures into the wilds of Claremont, armed only with a field recorder and a couple of microphones, in hopes of speaking to everyday people about everyday stuff.

Unfortunately, sometmes a few of these random, short interviews get superseded due to time and scheduling constraints.  This series - Random Shorts - is intended to wrap up what has been an exceptional 2022, and air those worthy and real interviews, in their natural state, as much as is practicable.

This interview, with the lovely and talented Lori and her conversational companion Hector, was conducted during the height of the Happy Crowd's last performance.  Although most of the background sounds have been masterfully mitigated, the conversation is real and unedited.  The pair discuss their careers, growing up in Claremont, how Claremont's people are accepting and friendly more so than elsewhere, and a myriad of other short topics. 

These Random Shorts are intended to simply give the people that choose to speak a chance to be heard.  Look for more of the best of 2022's Random Shorts to come.  For 2023, if you see the Claremont Speaks' interviewer walking around - easily identifiable by the fashion-forward "Claremont Speaks" T-shirt and a handful of recording gear - be ye not shy; step up, say hi, and ask to  talk about...whatever is on your mind.

Feedback, questions, comments, constructive criticism are all welcomed and encouraged.
