Last night I got to listen to myself interviewed on radio. I really enjoyed talking to Darren Levy of WNYU (89.1 in New York). He'd read the book, and he had smart questions that helped me bring out some of what the book has to say, and hopefully answered some of the questions the audience had. You can listen to the show streamed, or download the podcast
. It's about half an hour long.
If you guys have any comments or questions about the podcast, please feel free to put them in the comments below.
UPDATE: You can download the last minute (and the answer to the last question) at Darren Levy's Angelfire page. Weirdly, you have to go to this page first
, and then go to the next page by putting the following URL into your browser window: http://www.angelfire.com/punk4/darren/aepsteinsecret.mp3.
I really enjoyed that. Thank you, Alex.
I'm definitely going to pick up your book next time I'm at Borders. I've recently started writing my first TV spec, partly because I finally made a professional contact that enjoys my writing and he's a TV guy, and it sounds like your book could answer a lot of my questions.
Only problem was --at least for me-- the interview cut off at the end. The interviewer asked you what advice you'd have for aspiring TV writers and suddenly... nothing.
So what advice WOULD you have for aspiring TV writers? (if you don't mind repeating yourself)
Nuked my previous post because Dante already covered the missing answer issue.
Unless it's intended to be a mysterious, interpretive thing like the whispers at the end of BRICK or LOST IN TRANSLATION, I think we'd all like to hear what you had to say.
I enjoyed the interview, and the book as well. Thanks for both!
See the updated post above for where you can download the last little bit of the interview.
Ask, and ye shall receive!
One thing: your blog's URL got prepended in the href, so the link doesn't work unless you go right to the angelfire site. You might want to edit that, when you get a mo'.
