Coming Up: My First Podcast Interview

I just got off the phone with Eric Kimball from the Webcomic Newscast, who interviewed me about the Oatmeal v. FunnyJunk saga. Eric is a good interviewer, and we talked about the Streisand Effect and how to avoid it, the etiquette of cease and desist letters, the promise of anti-SLAPP statutes, and what interested citizens can do to promote free speech. My favorite moment: not knowing how family-friendly the podcast is meant to be, I decided on the fly to refer to the Greater Internet Fellow Theory.

So: if you ever wanted to confirm your suspicion that I sound like Kermit the Frog on a nachos-and-Lortab binge, this is your shot. I'll drop a note when it's scheduled for release, hopefully later this week.

    wow, I don't think i've seen this level of internet crazy cast such a wide net in my life. I've got to wonder if will be next for writing this or even myself for making this comment here… oh, never mind, i'm behind 7 proxies… /trolololololo

    Excited to hear it! (A Popehat podcast would be pretty awesome btw, ESPECIALLY if you sound like Kermit.)

    Podcast? As in iPod? As in Apple? Looks like Charles will have someone else to subpoena. ;)

    I would have gone for "flipjob" as opposed to "fellow" (or even gone all BSG and gone for "frackwad"), but that's just me.

    Looking forward to it, sure to be an informative interview. :)
