Today’s Radio

I made it to the studio today, despite the fact that I feel like I’m dying of jet lag and allergies. The show is now available online.

The first hour opens up with a guest appearance by a local performance poet, Isadora Vibes. I was very impressed by her, and hope to get to see one of her shows soon. In the second half hour we talk about a variety of things to do with travel and conferences. That includes a segment of me talking about my recent trip to Finland. There are brief mentions of Karin Tidbeck, Johanna Sinisalo, Hannu Rajaniemi and, of course, the fabulous Mercedes Urbano-Winquist and her chocolate factory.

I only do the first 15 minutes of the second hour, which is all about kitchen gadgets. Lots more interesting and serious things follow, but I was on my way home, after which I slept for a few hours.

I won’t be doing the show next week, but for the other two Wednesdays in June I have lined up Eugene Byrne and Jo Hall as my studio guests. I also have an interview with Madeline Ashby that I need to edit and do something with.
