Media Overload

The last couple of weeks were extremely busy in terms of media exposure.  On March 5th I was interviewed by Rudy Maxa, aka the Savvy Traveler, on the radio show Rudy Maxa’s World, syndicated on a hundred stations across the U.S.  You can listen to the interview at:

Simply go to the broadcast entitled “March 5, 2011 – Hour 2” and scroll forward to the 23:45 minute mark where my interview begins.

The following week I made my TV debut on the Minneapolis talk show “KARE-11 Today.”  I was nervous but hope that my fear didn’t come across on camera.  You can be the judge–the streaming video is available at:

Then I hit the trifecta with an invitation to do a segment for the Peter Greenberg Worldwide radio show.  Now I am embarrassed to admit that I had not heard of Peter Greenberg before receiving that invitation.  However, when I saw his list of achievements, I was blown away: Emmy Award winner, investigative reporter (Dateline NBC), New York Times best-selling author, contributor to Forbes magazine, a frequent guest on Oprah, Conan, Dr. Phil, Larry King, and (most important from my point of view) host of a CBS radio show heard on 400+ stations in North America!  This guy is the big cahuna.  You can listen to a podcast of that March 12th show at:

I hope you enjoy these mass media interviews.

On Sunday, January 23rd, I was interviewed about my book On The Other Guy’s Dime by Lizz Sommars of KMTT radio, 103.7 FM, in Seattle.  Lizz, a veteran reporter with 25 years experience in radio, is host of the weekly public affairs show Conversations that discusses issues affecting individuals, families, local communities, and the nation.  The theme of the show I was on was “Saving Money.”

I invite you to listen to a podcast of that interview on the station’s website.  To access it go to http://www.kmtt.com/pages/3953960.php.  Scroll down to the box labeled Previous Show Topics and Guests, select  ‘Conversations – 1/23/11,’ click the play button, and the podcast will begin.  There were three guests that day, and I was the second.  You can listen to the entire show or simply move the scroll bar forward to the 12 minute 30 second mark where my interview begins.
