RadioPotato gets Erudited…er, Interviewed!
I once magically got an A+ on a high school essay. Considering I took the SAT’s three times and actually got dumber according to my scores, I felt like MENSA would be calling any minute. You know, until the repeated rejection letters came in from Rutgers. Incidentally (or not coincidentally), it was a paper that pit the writings of contemporary wild musician of The Doors’ Jim Morrison vs. the literary legend and Romantic-era bad-ass Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Needless to say, I can be peculiarly prolific about music. The rest? Notsomuch. In the meantime, there is an ACTUAL writer, Jim Hodgson that launched his own podcast about words, writing, and all things interesting with comedic foil and one of Twitter’s Most Eligible Bachelors, Nick Tapp. The podcast is called ERUDITION. Yup, had no idea what that meant either but I put a definition below. You’re welcome. In the meantime, they asked to interview me about RadioPotato, writing, and music. Wanna hear it? Okay, fine.
er·u·di·tion; noun \ˌer-ə-ˈdi-shən, ˌer-yə-\

Oh, and if you’re a fellow blogger, can I get an AMEN up in here if this has happened to you because it’s a way of life for me?
- You email your brilliant ideas…to yourself
- Reading other people’s blogs makes you regularly pissed that you didn’t think of the idea first
- Your fingers get blisters from Refreshin’ your Site Stats like its yo’ damn job
- When you interview others, all you care about is that “they” (meaning your readers/listeners and the interview) don’t think you’re a complete moron
- Secretly happy and self-loathing when negative comments are posted on your writing/ideas
