Last week I had my first TV studio experience. BJ Krintzman, Newton lawyer, mega-blonde and overall fabulous person, interviewed me on her long running cable television show, “That’s the Law”. I was hard pressed to figure what Architecture by Moonlight had to do with the law, but BJ made a clever connection, which led us into a fascinating discussion of Haiti. BJ made some other fresh observations: describing the book as “A Year in Provence meets Three Cups of Tea.” Watch the interview here.
Three things I learned from my adventure in television:
1. Studios are wicked cold. I was glad I wore a sweater.
2. You can’t see a thing beyond the bright lights, except these flashing time signs that pop up with ten minute, five minutes, one minute left that burn into your brain and make you want to talk faster.
3. When you see hosts and guests chatting during the credits, we’re not actually saying anything. BJ just told me to fake blather.
Thanks to BJ and her great crew for interviewing me. I am all ready for John Stewart. Why hasn’t he called yet?
