I was interviewed by BBC World Service last night. Reporter Jeff Baird, an American BBC employee from Oregon, saw that Fark.com linked to a news article about my Texas speed trap report. Lawrence Pollard did the actual interview.
We did it over Skype. I didn’t have good equipment, so I had to put my face about 4″ from the microphone on my son’s Asus netbook. If you listen to the interview, you’ll hear disturbances in the audio. I guess I leaned too closely or breathed into it?
The Russian subway bombing prevented them from playing it in the London breakfast show, but it played a few times before their dawn.
The full 27 minute segment I was on. (I think I am towards the end.)
This plain text belies my excitement, but this was a major high for me. I cannot believe I’ve been broadcasted on wordwide media.
