Several weeks ago, Greg Hanley reached out to me and asked if he could help do something to commemorate the 100th episode of the show. Specifically, he invited me down to the offices of FTF Behavioral Consulting in Worcester, Mass to hang out with all the amazing behavior analysts he works with for the afternoon.
During the visit, Greg turned the tables on me and put me in the interview hot seat. He asked me some really good questions about the podcast, and what I’ve learned from doing it over the last 4 years or so. I’ve been interviewed before, both on this podcast as well as a few others, but I think Greg managed to eke out a few stories from me that I haven’t told before, and more generally, asked some really great questions. By the end of this show, you might be asking yourself why he doesn’t have a podcast himself?
My original plan going into this was to try to deflect every question and turn the conversation back to the cool stuff that he’s doing with FTF, what’s new with practical functional assessment, and so forth. Sadly, before we started recording, he strictly forbade me from doing so. As such, I’ll just have to have him on again in the future, or do another private Q & A with Greg with the Behavioral Observations Podcast Membership Group.
Before I mention this episode’s sponsors, I’d like to take a minute to thank you, the listener, for helping me get to Session 100. I really feel that this show is an interactive endeavor, as I have met so many people in my travels and corresponded with BCBA’s from around the world. We talk about this for a little bit in this episode, but I want to mention it again and just let you know how much I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to download and listen to the podcast. The responses in the never-ending task analysis that is podcasting would’ve extinguished long ago if it wasn’t for all the encouragement and feedback I’ve received. At the risk of sounding overly sappy, this podcast has changed me as a person and a professional, so let me just conclude this session with a heartfelt thank you.
