10/11/2011 (post by Josh Slocum, exec. director)—Anyone who knows me wouldn’t expect me to thank them for getting me up at 6 a.m., but my hat’s off to the fantastic volunteers at the FCA of East Tennessee for a jam-packed and fun day on October 6. Before addressing the membership at their annual convention, my hosts set up two radio interviews to talk about our consumer advocacy work and my new book, Final Rights, co-written with Lisa Carlson.
- First cup of coffee—a spot on Knoxville’s top-rated Hallerin Hill talk show on WOKI. Thanks Hallerin, and thanks to Channing Smith and WOKI for letting us post the audio (and also to Channing and Karen for the best barbecue and biscuits I’ve had in years)! Click here to download the .mp3.
- Second (OK, third) cup—an interview with Brandon Hollingsworth of WUOT, Knoxville’s NPR affiliate out of the University of Tennessee
Thanks also to the more than 60 people who turned out for my talk later that day!
