1. A 15 minute interview will be on the Authors Show on the 23rd of July from 12:05am to 11:55pm EDST (New York City USA Eastern Daylight Savings Time). I’ve put a huge amount of emotional energy and maybe three days’ work into this, and feedback from their staff is that we have created a high-quality, entertaining and inspiring interview.
Please listen, and send along lots of other people, particularly if they suffer from depression.
What I get for free is that 24 hours of exposure. If I want some real publicity, reaching new people beyond sending my friends along, I’d need to pay $US300. Given the exchange rate, that’s about $480 Australian, which is not on. As my friends know, my wife and I have lived a deliberately low income, low cost lifestyle since 1978, as our contribution to slowing the destruction of the life support system of our little planet. It is also a major path to contentment, and is covered in my book.
2. The day after, I’ll be chatting with Bob Pessemier, who has a colourful and interesting history. He is doing a public service with his podcasts, reviews and essays. He runs As We Get Older, which is a blog for men who are past the first blush of youth. 🙂 That’s defined as over 35, which to me is barely out of teenage, but well…
He is interviewing me on Wednesday, 24th July. Time depends on where you live. It will be 9 am for me in Melbourne, Australia, with is 10 hours ahead of GMT. In Seattle where Bob lives, it’ll be 4pm on Tuesday 23rd. However, these interviews are archived, so you can listen at any time.
