I was cleaning out all of my paper and digital address books, trying to make sense of all these scraps of paper and I noticed that my collection of contacts was pretty varied. Hell, it includes not one but two public radio hosts, both named Jesse.
What the hell do you do with something like that? As a journalist of the lowest order, I know its good to connect with as many folks as you can and to try to maintain those relationships. In an odd way, this podcast is the extension of that.
The idea is pretty simple. I’m going to talk to one person every few weeks (no idea how often) and record it and serve it up to you.
Will it be enlightening? I hope so, but no promises.
