I had my Andy Warhol brush with fame (mine lasted 15 minutes) last week on Mike Brand’s Rainbow program on All for Peace Radio. It was rather elementary stuff: “what’s a blog?” “how many visit your blog?” “how do you let people know about your blog?” But I did get a chance to promote a few other blogs dealing with Israeli Palestinian peace which I admire. I also got a chance to talk about the reasons why blogging on this subject from a progressive vantage point is important. Thanks again, Mike, I really appreciate the opportunity to speak to your audience. And thanks for opening your air to bloggers like us.
Here’s the audio of the interview. I tried using Polderbits to record and edit the audio file. For some reason I don’t understand, it looks like the interview doesn’t begin until 1:13 into the file. So be prepared to use your slider to move to the beginning of the interview. The sound quality is not superb and a few important words and syllables are so garbled that what I say is unintelligible. The one Palestinian blog I wanted to plug and whose URL was garbled in the interview is Raising Yousouf, a fine effort by a Gazan mom who reports for Al Jazeera (not sure if she’s a freelancer or regular staff).
