Weekend Edition w/ Scott Simon

Howdy everybody – hope that the summer has been going well!

So tomorrow, June 26th, I’m going to be featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition with Scott Simon! I’m a huge NPR nerd, so the opportunity to be featured on one of my favorite programs was a real treat. I’m not certain how long the segment is going to be, exactly, but I know that I spoke with Scott for well over forty-minutes. Most of the interview surrounded my experiences working on Double Take as well as some of my more recent endeavors.

Most of local airing times are between 7AM and 9AM, but check your local listings to be sure. If you want to stream the show, or even check out some older programs, you can find it all right here.

    Hey Kevin,
    I'm a PA in Bozeman at MSU, know you but you probably don't know me. We've talked a few times over the years, always enjoyable.
    So I just heard a trailer for tomorrow's Weekend Edition, Scott Simon mentioning your name. Heard it out of the corner of my ear, perked up and just thought I'd check your website to see what's up….and it IS you who is on tomorrow…….Congratulations!!! Very cool! That must be a thrill. I'll miss the show (I'm on KGLT tomorrow 6 -9 am….) but will definitely check it out in the archived edition!
    Hope all is going well.
    All the best,
    catherine ebelke

    Just heard your interview. I'm an NPR nerd as well. You've probably already guessed that's what led me to your blog.

    Anyway, it's fascinating.

    I am especially a Sat AM NPR fan and heard your interview while on a early AM grocery store run…did not know your story but will be following now and checking out the book. Good luck

    Dear Kevin,
    I missed the show but will visit the website after posting this. I was visiting NYC last week with my two sons and escaped the heat by ducking into a cool bookstore with them. I was picking up another book while there but yours managed to catch my eye –my own double take of sorts, I suppose. I devoured your book –it's brilliant and teaches so much that I as a mother would hope to teach my boys. I have just lent your book to my 12-year old son –our first motherson book reading –and can't wait for the conversation that will follow it. Thank you for sharing your story. It's powerful. You have a gift to have been able to share it so early in your life. Warm regards, Berit

    Caught the interview Saturday, ordered the book last night, checked out the blog today (from the link on the NPR site). The video in the next post was fun–thanks for putting that up. The interview with Scott Simon was wonderful. I'm looking forward to hearing a longer version with Terry Gross.

    Thanks Berit! Hope that your boy digs it, and doesn't mind my Dad's cursing!

    Hi Catherine! Thanks for saying hello! Always good to hear from someone in Bozeman. I'm still in town, so hopefully I see you round…

    I just heard the bit on my podcast, most e-mailed stories. You're amazing! The part about Sarajevo is really moving. But what really made the story worth listening to is your wonderfully bright laughter. It's like an ice cream cone with sprinkles on a hot summer day; I love it!!

    Hi Kevin,
    Heard your interview on NPR last week and ordered if off Amazon. Just about done. It was a great read. Made me laugh a lot, just about made me cry when you left your girlfriend (guess a lot has happened since then) but mostly just inspired me to love life.

    Hi Kevin.
    Dull Sunday morning in Worcester UK here!
    Just listened to your BBC interview on the BBC web site and it was sooooo good. In my life I have been fortunate to have met many people, some being (not sure what to say) disabled is not the right word! Someone I met was born with just two thumbs and a tiny one inch long finger on each hand. He was a fantastic artist! I so admire people who who overcome whatever problems they have. Pity you're not here at the moment. I'm just off to the pub for a lunchtime pint of good English beer.
    If ever you're over in the UK again. Let me know!
