hello, welcome to HUMAN INTERVIEWS

My name is Cole and HI is a project i began in 2014 where I facilitate interview dialogues with people i know or people i meet on ideas of self/no self; time; perception; love; and other things that bring wonder or questions to me. Mostly unanswerable things. Interviews are collected on the fly wherever i find myself to be or i schedule them with people who want to talk with me and contribute a moment’s idea on things. Explicit language and views with which you may not agree. Thank you to everyone listening.

For each episode I pick clips from interviews I’ve held between 2014-2023. All interviewees are recorded consentually for the purpose of sharing through my creative projects including the HUMAN INTERVIEWS radio show/podcast as well as classes, choreography, installations, and writings.

Verge.FM was an online radio station based in Columbus, Ohio uplifting creatives from the Midwest and beyond. Episodes of Human Interviews aired the third Friday of the month at 8pm from 2020-2022 on Verge.FM app and streaming online. I am immensely grateful to the founders of VRRG for the platform to share this project over 16 episodes and the impetus to continue it beyond. A few episodes (4-7) of HUMAN INTERVIEWS are available to listen to now on the Verge.FM MixCloud and are highlighted above. New episodes are back on May 19 and will be available along with the archive of the first 16 episodes wherever you podcast.

UPDATE: Beginning in September 2021 interviewees have the option to remain anonymous or to be named. Remaining anonymous was the practice from 2014-2021 out of solidarity with some of the first interviewees who could not be named for safety or privacy. I like that the project can stand with them and with people who choose to be named.
