Here is a link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMkuSOf1F4E to an “interview” you conducted with Eric Wiemer, a Ph.D. student in the Brian Lamb School of Communication, about a research project he helped conduct that was recently published. The project was headed by Assistant Professor Jennifer Hoewe, also of the Brian Lamb School. Wiemer is one of the co-authors on the publication.
You do not need to do additional interviewing. You must write the article based on Wiemer’s interview.
