It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Radio Show

A lot a bunch some one of you, asked if I could post the link to the show. I don’t think we’re the, ah, most polished interviewees in the world, but it’s not a bad start!

(The commercial host of the show is, an organization whose mandate is to link children with the best toys and resources for their growth and development.)

You know, if I’m going to branch out into the commercial world, I’ve got to get less self-conscious about giving the plugs. So maybe I should take the parentheses off?

  1. i say if you believe in what you’re plugging, plug it proudly, sans parentheses. the problem with the commercial world, too often, is that you end up heavily leaned on to plug products and people you don’t believe in – if, for some reason, you give in and plug them, that’s the time for parentheses. and *really* tiny font. and maybe some choice adjectives thrown in based on your own opinions.

    clearly i’d make a bad addition to the commercial world. 😛

  4. It is about time you girls got some press. I am constantly impressed with your wisdom, patience and most important, abillity to express common sense. Keep up the GREAT work.

  5. Kari: That sounds like a good set of principles to go by!

    Sunshine: Thank you! It’s the English degree. I am pretty articulate. Except for those time I go all aphasic and stand there asking for “the, the, the…thing!” – because what I want is the vegetable peeler, but the only word that springs to mind is ‘hairbrush’. GO figure. Thankfully, I had no such moments on the air!

    Chelsea: Thanks! Yes, Laura was a little quicker off the mark than I was. Her plug for the show on her personal site, MiM (on Monday, I think) was also much more commercially savvy than mine. I’m learning!

    Peter: Thanks for the encouragement. Laura’s going to go far: a child and family therapist with a boatload of common sense as well as all the theory and education!
