A Great Face for Radio

I can’t keep up with Fergus’s travels and don’t have his (probably fake) Glaswegian accent (see podcast in the blog below), but I too was on the ‘air’ recently on blog radio yesterday. I hadn’t even realised there was such a thing as blog-radio but apparently there is (maybe that is the next step in all of this “knowledge exchange” stuff).

Anyhow, I was interviewed by a fascinating guy named Herb Blake who has a desistance story all of his own to tell. In fact, the interview would have been more interesting (and more natural for me, at least) if I were the one asking the questions and he was the one telling his story (which is far more interesting than mine). See:
http://herbblake.com/ for some of this story.

His blog radio show interviews a variety of fascinating folks involved in social and criminal justice work in one way or another. I listened to a couple of the shows — the RJ legend Mark Yantze is great as is my friend Lorenn Walker from Hawaii. All are really interesting (despite the awkward commercials at the beginning).   I haven’t listened to the whole interview with me (would rather suffer a stomach flu to be honest), but he said he would edit our chat into something coherent and hopefully cut out all the usual stammering and stuttering.
