Yes @heyrocker, my interview is not the same as the one Terry Gross did in 2002. Just checked, as I wasn’t aware of that interview. And agreed, Gene said horrible things to Terry. There will be none of that on Pinball Profile. Terry does excellent research, but occasionally her guests get confrontational like Hilary Clinton did with her in 2014, whenever they feel uncomfortable or attacked, or caught in a lie. Terry is a pro. I would be lucky to be even a fraction of the interviewer that Terry is.
Here’s the thing about doing a show like mine. There’s variety. Not every show is of interest to everyone. But every show is of interest to someone…some shows more than others. I’d suggest listeners pick the ones you like.
I watch TV, but I don’t watch every show. I listen to the radio, but I don’t like every song. Same for a podcast. Some are going to interest certain people and not others. But since we are ALL different people and have different tastes, the variety of guests works best. An interview isn’t an endorsement (of anyone) it’s a conversation.
Pick and choose…hopefully I can provide many (not all) of interest. I think I’m doing that. I’ve been lucky, the number of downloads, subscribers, followers is more than I could have imagined when I started this podcast.
Thank you everyone for all of the feedback, whether compliments or criticisms. It helps me get better with these.
