A Good Face for Radio
Yesterday was a milestone of sorts for Intellectual Affairs, my column: the second anniversary of its debut. For the first ten months, I wrote it twice a week. Since then, it's run at the somewhat more leisurely pace of once a week.
So far, it comes to 132 columns. I'm making a selection of them now for a short book. But clearly the smart move would be to shift over to broadcasting....
I just got off the phone with the hosts of "Freestyle," a talk show on CBC Radio. It broadcasts across Canada each afternoon, and the first segment for today's show is based on my recent piece about clutter.
It was fun to do -- mostly a recap of points from the piece. As the segment ended, they referred to me as a "messy essayist." That has a nice ring to it even though the clutter my study is actually pretty under control, for the moment at least. The show is available in streaming audio and will be broadcast this afternoon starting at 2 pm EST.
