September 2, 2014
Last week was an unexpectedly busy vacation week. An interview I did with Business News Daily on engaging women at work was published on the 26th, and on the 27th I was a guest on a show I've listened to and admired for years: WNYC's The Brian Lehrer Show.
This interview was a result of the piece I wrote for Entrepreneur.com on why women tend to stick in jobs longer than men. It was slightly nervewracking, especially as I was doing the interview via Skype from 100 miles away, but it ultimately worked out in spite of my jitters. I took callers' questions as well as Brian's own, which included a query about my own transition from Marketplace reporter to podcast host.
Afterwards I collapsed in relief at the beach. Live radio ain't for sissies, especially when you're the questioned rather than the questioner.
