More proof that (I am still) the consummate media whore!
Lately, I've been in the Washington Post (writing in about consumer debt), the NY Times (the Iraq War) the Trenton Times (flu shot shortage) as well as my local rag. I've also been on the BBC (talking about the Danish cartoon-of-Muhammad thing) and ESPN (figure skating.)
Clearly these media outlets are not very picky, given they let me talk about such a wide variety or stuff from gardening to sports to relationships. I'm hardly an expert on such a broad rage of topics! Getting on these shows is easy. All I do is call 'em up and weigh in. It's the same as a letter to the editor. Just shoot 'em a note! Anyone with a point of view and a little initiative can be a part of the debate, no matter what the topic. You shoud try it!
Last week was especially fruitful:
*I called into WHYY's Radio Times Show where to topic was "What men really think about?"
(From their website: We talk NEIL CHETHIK author of "VoiceMale: What Husbands Really Think About Their Marriages, Their Wives, Sex, Housework, and Commitment." Among his findings Chethik says the happier women are with the division of housework, the happier men are with their sex lives.) Listen to the whole show via Real Audio Listen to my 4 minute segment here:
*Later I managed to finagle myself into the pages of Sports Illustrated with a little tennis commentary!
*And back on the radio this morning on NPR's gardening show ("You Bet Your Garden") chatting about home made mulch and compost. It was the show's seventh anniversary and it was great to be invited! Listen to my 4 1/2 minute segment here:
