Talking about Lincoln: Update

I had my first radio interview last evening, on Egberto Willies “Politics Done Right” show on KPFT in Houston, Texas. It was a good experience and not a little nerve-wracking, but I think it went pretty well. The show lasted an hour and Egberto was gracious enough to give me plenty of time to talk (that is not to say, of course, that I wouldn’t have liked more!).

At any rate, I’ll be posting the podcast of this interview as soon as Egberto gets it to me. In the meantime, please sign up for the blog to receive emails.

Here is the link to the podcast of last night’s show. Please listen in and tell me how I did.

UPDATE: 2:21 p.m. 5/20/14

One caller on the show last evening had a query regarding a change in textbooks in Texas whereby slaves would now be called “unpaid interns.” That surprised me very much and I said so. I queried the Texas Freedom Network about this today, and Dan Quinn, their Communication Director, informed me that this story is more or less a hoax, or parody. Still, as Dan pointed out to me, one has to ask how our politics have gotten to the point where this is even remotely believable. Thanks to last night’s caller for bringing this to my attention.
