Neal Conan is a phenomenal interviewer...

...and radio show host, and WBEZ in Chicago is a fun place to go to be interviewed by him live on Talk of the Nation. And the latter is not just because of the miniature Tyrannoaurus rex action figure in the studio I did the interview from, which I am told was left there by Ira Glass before he decamped with This American Life to New York: Major thanks to Neal Conan for the great questions, all the callers for their comments and insights, and to Mary in Chicago and Gwen and Audrey in DC for helping to make this happen and happen without a hitch.

I tuned in at the time mentioned in your previous post, but your segment must have been on earlier. Oh well.

Glad it went well.

Thanks, Laura!

And thanks for trying to listen, Andrew. I like your website. If you want to hear the interview, it's available on the link I posted on the Talk of the Nation site.

I just listened to the rebroadcast on KPCC. Good interview! I agree that they had a good mix of callers with intelligent comments.

I haven't read your book yet, but I ordered it from Amazon.
