A number of you asked to be alerted when Erica posted our conversation. Here it is.
I always feel ambivalent about doing these recorded interviews, I think in part because I do not feel as if I’m terribly articulate in person. While I love talking with just about anyone, I don’t enjoy being reminded that I tend to stumble here and there, and say you know and um, and swear more than I should.
That’s in part why I often decline interview requests (I wrote “often” because it makes it sound as if I get waaay more requests than I actually do). But I really like and trust Erica, and I feel honored to be the subject of her particular brand of craft. She’s the Terry Gross of Vermont. Or maybe I should say that Terry Gross is the Erica Heilman of NPR. Yeah. I like that better.
Anyway. I hope you enjoy it.
