  • Excellent interview. Had fun listening to it.

  • This interview totally rocked... Of course, Capote was a bitch, so I hope that's not part of Michael's ultimate objective.

    I found it interesting when Michael started talking about the next phase of his blog... bloggers block + digital camera = potentially bad stuff. I just hit my blogger wall the other day, and finally got my mobile posting function set up, so I can shove cameraphone shots to Flickr, and thence directly to my blog... Made me realize that I'm evolving in an existing pattern... but, hey, it's new to me.

    I did find it interesting that you've chosen to use an old radio trick of "station identification". It worked well to break up the interview, deal with listener fatigue... and to remind me of your brand as the show was going on. From a PodCaster perspective, I like that. From a listener perspective, I wasn't at all annoyed. Well implemented.

    I recently unsubscribed from a show I've listened to for the last almost two years, "The Dragon Page Cover to Cover". They're switching from an author interview and book review show to an author process show. It's amazing to me how their focus in their show just feels so different from your "Across the Mic" show and it's format. Even though I don't do any published writing and don't do much blog posting, your show seems to reflect more about the process of creation... not just the process of writing and publishing... there... that's the difference.

    Thanks, man.
