Well, that was unexpected. I will be interviewed tomorrow during the 3pm hour (EST) for the national "Talk of the Nation" program (out of Washington, D.C.) for National Public Radio. I've been asked to wear my science fiction/fantasy scholar hat and discuss the fan phenomenon surrounding Star Wars, Star Trek, and The Lord of the Rings since -- just in case you've been living under a rock -- tomorrow is the debut of the final Star Wars prequel, and last Friday was the final episode of the Star Trek series Enterprise. This is just FYI, in case you wish to point at your radio and laugh at me. :)

For all of you seeing Episode III tonight/tomorrow, may the Force be with you!

And a quote, because it makes me giggle:

Leonard: He's a Klingot.
Tos: A Klingon.
Archer: Where'd he come from?
Williams: Oklahoma.
"Broken Bow," Enterprise

How exciting! It's hard for me to catch Talk of the Nation live, but I will certainly listen to it from their web site later. I hope they ask good questions!

Thanks so much! I appreciate it. I too hope they ask good questions, too! I talked for quite a while with the producer of the program, and it sounds like he has given this phenomenon a lot of thought. Should be interesting.

Oh, wow! :) Thanks! Just remember: if I sound like an idiot, you can always just edge away from the radio and pretend that you don't know me. ;)

Thanks so much! :) I believe the audio will go up on the website later for access from anywhere, but I'll wait to give details until I'm sure that I want anyone to hear it. LOL! Thanks again!

how'd it go? how'd it go? I'm assuming it's all over cos, y'know, we always miss everything that's going on in The World.

belated congrats on the gig! I'm sure you blitzed them with your smarts and good humour.

It's still a day away, actually, and your kind words and good vibes are most appreciated! :) Many thanks!

Wah! The New Orleans Public Raido station doesn't get "Talk of the Nation," just classical music all day until 4pm! Bummer! I would have loved to hear you and I could've on my way from work but for the lack of that programming on WWNO. Congrats mightily!
