Welcome to In Your Own Words, a brand new blog dedicated to engaging conversation with interesting people in everyday life. My name is Joshua Rising and although I do not necessarily lead an interesting life, I know many other people that do. So why not exploit their interesting lives for my own gain? There’ll be serious pieces, where I’ll be talking to some great people about either the exciting industry they work in or the music that has impacted their life (which I’m proud of). There’ll also be some opinion based work and other, more personal pieces (which I will, almost certainly, instantly regret). Got a problem? Contact the HR team- consisting of myself and myself only.
