A Great Face For Radio....
Blogging - it's not just for keyboards anymore! I am being interviewed tonight on the John W. Smart show "Talking With...." If you would like to listen live, it will air at 6pm (PST), 9pm (EST). But through the magic of the intertubes you can always download it after the fact and listen at your leisure.
"Talking With...." is a new show and I'm his first guest.
For quite some time now, John has had a very popular (and compelling) blogtalk radio show on Mondays and Tuesdays called "The List". It's politics, baby. Like all commentators, he has a definite set of principles and beliefs, and is not above having guests on with opposing ideas. But what sets his format apart and makes for a rewarding listen is that, he doesn't humiliate and shred those guests! In a rare (these days) move, he performs like a grown up, keeps the discourse civil, and thanks these guests for their time! As a result, I find that I am caused to actually think through and own my own opinions, rather than just having the knee-jerk 'jump to the left, jump to the right' reaction that I experience with more divisive interviewers.
Though a self described "Political Junkie", Smart has many areas of interest and wanted a forum to explore them. Hence the decision to continue doing "The List" on Mondays and start the new "Talking With...." on Tuesdays.
