What If? Podcast


The day after writing yesterday’s post about death, I hear from my friend Alexandra Kalinowski that the podcast interview I gave her last week was ready and live, and that she’d gone with my death as the subject! Fancy that.

I still squirm a little whenever I have listen to own voice — yes, even professional vocalists suffer from this affliction. Fortunately, Alexandra did a great job editing, so my own apprehension is only slightly above its usual background radiation level. This is actually saying a lot, as it is her very first podcast episode ever! Please show her some love in your podcaster of choice.
