This episode was special for me: I had the chance to sit down for a chat with Brian Fox. Just weeks after his retirement, Brian looks back at a long and rich career in SCIC, the interpreting service of the European Commission, both as an interpreter and in various roles in administration. We chat about his personal background, how he got into foreign languages and interpreting, his various roles in SCIC, the development of interpreting (including remote) and the future of our profession.
What do interpreters think about themselves and their profession? Do male and female interpreters have different opinions? And what do conference interpreters think about their public service peers? Italian interpreter and researcher Paola Gentile, PhD has crunched the data and tells us all about it.
Rebecca Gausnell is back! After a wonderful chat in episode 23 (embedded below), we chat about what she's been up to since working on Berlin Station. And we dive deep into standard and neutral accents and debunk the "vocal fry" myth. Listen in!
