Alston and Barzyk

On this episode of Made Possible By…, longtime public TV producer Fred Barzyk advises interviewer Paris Alston to “be a storyteller.” Barzyk should know — he’s full of stories about his wide-ranging work in television, and you’ll hear more than a few here.

“There is a way that you can take your passion, your vision, and get it into the shows that you’re doing,” Barzyk tells Alston, a digital producer for WGBH in Boston. “Gamble, take it. The only way you’re going to learn anything is by your mistakes. You have to have big mistakes to have big successes.”
