I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the Plum producers on a number of different topics. It was a great opportunity to connect with everyone and listen to their perspective on our industry, current trends and tips for our clients. But my favorite questions were the ones that uncovered their passion for the work they do and learning how the heck they got into this business in the first place.
Over the course of his career, Milwaukee producer, Kelly Daley, has interviewed some amazing people. Some famous. Some not. In this video he shares some stories of his most memorable interviews and why he loves the diversity of work that Plum brings. (Transcript Below Video)

“One of the things I love about what we do at Plum is the diversity of the work
Over the years, I've worked with brain surgeons, and politicians and bankers and sports heroes and a guy who owns a porta-potty business, and they're all part of life's rich pageant.
You know, sometimes the interviews that are most memorable, aren't necessarily because the people were famous. I interviewed a young mother in Austin Texas whose baby had been shaken. It was a phenomenal story. I interviewed a young woman in Illinois, who decided she wanted to be a pediatric oncology nurse, because of the care she received from nurses when she was being treated for cancer. I'll never forget those two interviews.
I interviewed three of the greatest names in baseball history. Billy Martin, Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle. And being a real baseball fan, that was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed that.
As a Cub reporter I interviewed Ronald Reagan standing in front of a statue of Abraham Lincoln in Dixon, Illinois. And then years later I did a video on Ronald Reagan's daughter, Maureen Reagan. I spent a day with her and she was very gracious and warm and welcoming and she wanted to know all about my very brief encounter with father. At least she made believe she wanted to know. And that Reagan-Reagan, Father-Daughter connection was pretty cool. I'll always remember that."
