It's All Journalism - Podcast Interview
Matt Dembicki, Joe Carabeo, and I were interviewed by Michael O'Connell for his show, It's All Journalism. A fine show - I have listened to several episodes, but need to catch up on the more recent editions. We discussed self-publishing, comics, District Comics, and Magic Bullet (Washington, DC's comic newspaper). Joe and I also discussed our podcast, The Carolyn & Joe Show.
Michael also took us on a tour of WTOP, which was amazing. I love the constant news flow and the energy there. We recorded on a slow news day and the main headlines were Kristen Bell having a baby and a group of local teens spilling milk at area grocery stores. Even so, I was intrigued by the work environment and my inner Lois Lane came out.
Thanks to Michael of having us as guests. It was a fun time and I always enjoy chatting with him!
