They know me in Vienna

Not that it would score me a free Linzertorte, but an interview with me about being a journalist who blogs aired yesterday on Austria's ORF radio network. Los Angeles-based freelance reporter Janko Roettgers came over, spoke with me about why I began LA Observed and how I go about writing the site, then translated the piece into German. No audio link, but here's a link to the text of Die Welt der Blogs.

They know me a little better in Northridge, which is the suburb of Los Angeles where I grew up. Tonight I made a live guest appearance on "Molly Barnes' Art News" on the Cal State Northridge radio station, KCSN. Molly is an art dealer in Los Angeles and New York and I enjoyed talking with her about the artistic side of the Los Angeles history that I write about.
