[Podcast Interview]
Beyond the Book, podcast, publishing, Copyright Clearance Center Beyond The Book #324: A New Chief for TeleRead
Originally aired October 14, 2012

During the very earliest days of my stint as editor-in-chief of TeleRead, the world’s oldest-known website devoted exclusively to the business of e-books and digital publishing, I was invited to appear as a guest on the Copyright Clearance Center’s fantastic podcast, Beyond The Book.

Podcast host Christopher Kenneally and I discussed the latest legal and cultural happenings in the e-book space, although it’s probably worth bearing in mind that this interview took place way back in the autumn of 2012 — a heck of a long time ago as far as the digital publishing universe in concerned.

Click here to listen to other episodes of the incredibly well-produced Beyond the Book, which describes itself as “a podcast series on the business of writing and publishing.” It’s one I recommend all self-employed writers and independent publishers pay especially close attention to.

[Television Interview]
KDKA-TV/CBS Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh Today Live
Originally aired Summer 2011

Not long after the publication of the second edition of Moon Pittsburgh, a guidebook I update every few years for Avalon Travel, I appeared as a guest on KDKA-TV’s “Pittsburgh Today Live” with host Kristine Sorenson. The interview includes a brief discussion of my travel writing career, and a few can’t-miss suggestions for anyone planning an upcoming trip to Pittsburgh.

KDKA TV 2 PittsburghFun fact: The show’s other guests on the day of my interview included the winners of a local beauty pageant and an entire six-man motocross team. One of the motocross riders had to sit in the waiting room while his teammates were interviewed because there wasn’t enough room on the set. He was bummed. Understandably.

The Waffle Shop: Pittsburgh, Pa.

The Waffle Shop, Pittsburgh: A live talk show (Summer 2011)

The Waffle Shop was a conceptual art project started by Carnegie Mellon University art instructor Jon Rubin. It operated as an actual waffle shop and cafe, but it doubled as a live talk show studio; anyone who wanted to could host their own talk show onstage, while the cafe’s patrons served as the audience. I hosted an hour-long show as a promotion for the second edition of Moon Pittsburgh (Avalon Travel); my guests were three well-known Pittsburgh entrepreneurs whose businesses were reviewed in the guidebook. (Click the image to view the video)
