I was on WNYC's "The Brian Lehrer Show" this morning, to discuss Barack Obama, a stupid, caustic memo and Indian Americans and voting.
The Brian Lehrer Show is a two-hour weekday talk show covering local and national current events and social issues hosted by Brian Lehrer, a former anchor and reporter for NBC Radio Network. [wiki]
I didn't realize that they were going to take callers, but hey...what fun is life without surprises? ;) For a life-long NPR fan like me, getting invited on the program was extra fantastic. WNYC is one of the most-listened-to public radio stations in the country, so I'm not being insincere when I type that my brief spot on the show made me feel privileged.
For those of you who inquired about hearing it, et voila:
I don't get paid or otherwise compensated for blogging and especially recently, it didn't seem like doing so was worth my time or the risk to my emotional health, not when people were setting up hate sites and attacking my friends and family.
Once a year or so, I get to do something like this and I feel uber-lucky. :) And then anonymous attacks, no matter how vicious and unwarranted, well, they don't seem to matter when I feel this blissed.
