But my BIG news this week is that I just landed a gig substitute-hosting for Jeffrey Callison's wonderful afternoon interview program Insight, on KXJZ/Capitol Public Radio. If you don't listen to this show, every weekday at 2 p.m., you should; if you already do, you know why I'm excited by the prospect. This is Sacramento's version of National Public Radio's brilliant "Fresh Air," and a chance for me to work in a different, and very immediate, medium.
And the gig starts immediately: I'll be hosting a show with National Book Award-winning author Ha Jin ("Waiting," "A Free Life") THIS THURSDAY at 2 p.m. He will be speaking in the California Lecture Series that night at the Crest Theatre. As for Thursday's radio show, there will be another guest, and a great one is in the works, but is not yet confirmed. I'll let you know as soon as I do, and please tune in (90.9 FM) and let me know what you think!
