Reporter's Notebook

The art and science of the interview

Music, Words and Attitude

I finished and posted the Raveonettes interview last night.  It was a long one (night, that is) .  It sounds great.  Also, I edited and posted an interview with Daniel Simpson.  Simpson was a reporter with the New York Times between 2001 and 2002.  He decided at about 6 weeks into his cushy job with an expense account, a nice apartment, a great salary, a jeep and the kind of cachet you can only have with the Grey Lady that he was being punked by her.  And it all kind of goes downhill for him from there.  But it was a great interview.  I told him about Andrea Seabrook, a former NPR reporter who also, in the parlance, has gone “native”, “over the wall” or whatever euphemism you want to use for being tired of being lied to.  She has a new blog called “DecodeDC” which I read.  And I found a picture of her holding a sign that I loved so much that I turned it into one of those iconic inspirational posters you see everywhere.    Yes, I’m convinced that the world runs not on money and made up not of atoms, but of stories.
