Hey, I was on the radio again. The best possible radio: 89.3, The Current with Mary Lucia! I have to say, when I started Minnesota Stories one of my personal measures of success - oh heck, just a personal desire - was to be interviewed by Mary Lucia. So I'm shutting the site down now and moving to New York. Not really, I'm not actually doing that.

Listen here [MP3, 5.5 MB]

Meanwhile, I'm afraid something has changed on the MNstories server and I can't login to post a new video. Some MySQL nonsense. Let me direct you instead to a new videoblog in town:

Dan and Jen's Animal Friends

Also, some of you have asked about the comment registration. It's a pain in the ass, I know. It's hopefully temporary. I've been getting blasted with so much spam that it takes a very long time to delete and ban the offenders, time I don't have right now. Please be patient, I know you want to talk. :-)

I should also mention that I created Dan and Jen's Animal Friends in October after I listened to Ryanne Hodsen, Jay Dedman, and Chuck from MN Stories on MPR. It was a Morning Edition (I think) about videoblogging, and I listened to it during my break at school. Thanks guys!

Best question: "Are you good at self-promotion?"

I'd be honered. Use whatever you want. Our vids are for everyone, especially Minnesnowtans.

Chuck Olsen was just talking about this in a radio interview:

Chuck, isn't Mary just the best interviewer ever? Did you make your own podcast of your interview? MPR didn't make mine available and I failed to record it.
