Popularity Dialer on Bbc world service
Jenny and I had an interview with the BBC World Service last week. I was at the BBC World Service Studios on the
west side of NYC, she was in a studio in a public school in San Francisco, and the person interviewing us was in London.
I spent some time listening to past interviews that we had done, thought over some of the more academic aspects of the pop dialer, and in general had thought of all these erudite things to say. It's the BBC World Service, after all. And of course what happened was we were in the studio for like 20 minutes total, and at the very start our interviewer told us to keep it light and non-academic, and I never got to say any of the things that I prepared. But it was still a lot of fun.
You can hear how we did for yourself. It'll be broadcast on the BBC World Service today. I'll update this post with a link to it when I find out what it will be.
Funny story: The interviewer was under the impression that Jenny and I were a couple, and was all prepared to announce that on the radio until we set him straight.
