Truly Unplugged with Two Great Interviewers!
Two weeks ago I had a nice long interview session with two great interviewers, Guy Evans & James Wilson, with a solid independent website called ‘Smells Like Human Spirit.’ By now you all know what I mean by ‘great interviewers,’ right? Those who research their guest’s background and topic thoroughly, ask intelligent questions, let the guest talk-really talk and get truly unplugged, and don’t engage in annoying interruptions with shallow goofy comments. Oh, add to that a nonpartisan point of view, independent, passionate, commercial free (Man, I hate those commercial interruptions!) and while you are at it throw in deserved adjectives such as articulate … and, well, you’ve got what I refer to as ‘great interviewers.’
By the way, here is a side note: The above qualities fit my co-host Peter B Collins –that’s why he’s been my favorite radio host for years. As for me … hmmmm … okay, maybe partially. I do my research, I am totally nonpartisan and independent, but, a big chunky ‘BUT’: sometimes I lose my patience, I get disgusted, then I get a bit pi—ed, and, oh well, I am not able to hide and repress it, and you (our listeners) all can tell. This is where the big difference is between a real professional radio host and … ‘me.’ I am truly thankful for my co-host’s unlimited patience with me and my listeners’ tolerance.
All right, this post is about Smells Like Human Spirit, their recent interview with me, and my unplugging (yep, when I get to talk, talk, talk, and talk):
