Beneath The Tin Foil Hat Goes Global: My Interview on Russia Today.

You’re not going to believe this one; I just finished an interview on the Russian news channel Russia Today! Yesterday, like every blogger on the intertubes, I posted about the bombing in Oslo and the subsequent shootings in Utoya. Like everyone else, I gave my opinion as to who may have done it and why.  The next thing I  know, one of the producers from Russia Today is contacting me to do an interview on their news channel. We set up the interview over Skype and it was broadcast on their 8pm program. It only lasted a couple of minutes, and I stammered and stuttered through a lot of it, but it didn’t go half bad, considering the fact that I’m just a little old blogger from Cincinnati who doesn’t make it a practice to give interviews on Russian TV (or anybody’s TV for that matter 😉

At first, I thought this whole thing was a joke that someone was playing on me but it turned out to be legit! The news producer called me on my cell yesterday and we set the interview up for today. I warned her several times that I was just a small time blogger, and certainly no expert on the subject, but she didn’t seem to be bothered by that.  I woke up this morning to an e-mail from her with the questions that the news anchor would be asking. After desperately scrambling to download Skype and our web cam software, my partner and I managed to be set up just as they were calling me for the interview. The rest is history lol.

If the interview gets posted on their website, I’ll post a link to it when it becomes available. In the meantime, I’m going to go collapse in my easy chair and try to calm myself down a little!

My thanks goes out to Russia Today producer  Maria Kvantrishvil for the opportunity to speak; hopefully I didn’t embarrass you or me too badly 🙂

    That’s cool, but watch out for those Russians. We have some living across the street and I know they’re up to something nefarious. 🙂
