I’ve still not worked up the balls to listen to myself. I remember too many false starts and “umm”s for this to be anything but humiliating. But! Binnie Klein, author of Blows to the Head: How Boxing Changed My Mind and radio interviewer/DJ extraordinaire, kept things moving and helped pull me kicking and screaming through my first interview. It was exciting, sometimes fun, and harrowing. Terry Gross had better watch her back; Binnie brings funky-fresh air to the table.
Take a listen, give it a shot. If nothing else, it’ll confirm the fact that I’ve a terrible radio voice.
