Smart Design - National Public Radio Interview
While I was in Philadelphia, I appeared on Marty Moss-Coane's National Public Radio interview show, Radio Times. We had a delightful one-hour broadcast, starting off with watches and ending up, well, all over. Moss-Coane does her homework, so she asked intelligent, probing questions. we both had a lot of fun. The interview is available for streaming, for downloading, and also as a podcast (in mp3 format).
