FIR Interview- Ike Pigott, American Red Cross: June 2, 2007

Communicating with residents of areas struck by natural disasters is a challenge, but Ike Pigott—communications director for the American Red Cross’s Southeast region—has found that blogs can play a significant role in improving the flow of information. Ike and Shel Holtz talked about the introduction of blogs to the mix, the spread of the idea to other regions, and the potential for other social media in disaster communication as well as the possible other uses of blogs.

About our Conversation Partner

imageIke Pigott is the Director of Communications and Government Relations for the American Red Cross in the southeastern U.S.  As an in-house communications consultant, Ike counsels 107 local chapters on strategy, training, and crisis communications.
 
A 16-year veteran of broadcast news, Ike won several awards (including an Emmy for news writing.)  He left television - but not his passion for helping others tell their story to the world.  Ike is self-taught as a blogger, a web-designer, a site administrator, and a social media enthusiast.  He tells others that if he can learn it, they can too.

While making the transition to the non-profit world, Ike started freelancing as a media trainer and interview coach - and continues to hone those skills working with Red Cross volunteers who deploy across the country in disasters.  In the little spare time his family and work afford him, be blogs about whatever crosses his mind at Occam’s RazR and teaches Kung Fu at his home.  Ike is married with two young children who teach him more than he teaches them. He’s a regular on Twitter.

FIR Interview - Karl Susman, Blogger/Podcaster Insurance: 06/01/07

In the U.S. anybody can sue anybody for anything. Whether you’re right or wrong, being sued could cost tens of thousands of dollars just to defend yourself, to say nothing of a judgment against you. It’s an issue that is bound to hit bloggers and podcasters sooner or later, which is why Karl Susman—a blogger and a podcaster himself—found underwriters to provide liability insurance for bloggers and podcasters, which he now offers through his Los Angeles-based insurance agency.

Karl and Shel Holtz spoke about the liability insurance as well as equipment coverage and what it can mean for bloggers and podcasters.
