    ugh, i was so nervous interviewing Peter Saul and you can really hear it in my voice – i need some interview coaching from Duncan.

  2. Richard says:


    Duncan has one word of interviewing advice, beer.

    Well, beer, quality editing makes Duncan sound coherent, sometimes.


  3. I think you do well, Tom. I haven’t listened to this one yet — I’m saving it for a long drive on Friday, kind of like rationing your candy after Easter — but in all of your podcasts so far you showed enthusiasm and that I find great! Amanda is always good too, of course! I still struggle when I do them.

    Duncan is indeed great. I found that out especially in the long discusion with him before my interview and during. He keeps humor, interest and takes disagreement in stride. I’ll give him certainly his do and respect.

    I’m excited to hear Saul.

    thanks for the pep talk Mark! btw – my trip to central europe still hasn’t happened yet. the show was push back a bit, but will open during art brussels, late april. so hopefully when i am over there i will be able to make my way down your way and finally meet the euro-shark, and get to swim with the big boys.
