Economic Matters


"I had a chance to talk on a number of local NPR affiliates across the country, from Los Angeles to New Hampshire, from Dallas and Houston to Wisconsin. I was on KPFA in San Francisco and KPFC in LA on the Pacifica network—twice. I spoke with Michael Ray Dresser for his show, “Dresser After Dark” and Gary Goldberg for “Money Matters.” I spent an hour talking with Jim Bohanon for “The Jim Bohanon Show” on the CBS radio network. I appeared on Bloomberg Radio’s Hay’s Advantage and The Insana Quotient, a nationally syndicated business talk radio show. I was on the “Lanigan & Malone Morning Show” on WMJI in Cleveland, Ohio and on KOPJ-AM in Portland, OR. The writer Ira Wood interviewed me on WOMR in Cape Cod."
