An Interview on KUTV in Salt Lake City

Hello again! My traveling bags are finally unpacked and I’m happily back home teaching and writing again. I loved meeting everyone while on my "Is This Thing On?" book tour and "thank you" to all who came to my book events. Between you and me, however, domestic air travel in this country is a nightmare. There were delays, broken rudders, a flat tire (!) and cancellations. The grand finale was when 26 of us passengers were left in an airport terminal with no plane to be seen and no airline employees to share the status of our flight with us. Geez!

Over the next few weeks I’ll share TV clips from tour interviews. If your computer uses a dial-up connection to connect to the Internet, these video clips may not be accessible. Feel free to contact me and we’ll see if we can sort it out together.

Today’s video clip is from KUTV in Salt Lake City. First there will be a commercial and then the interview begins. If you want to pause the video, click on  in the bottom left of the video window. If you want to play the video, click on . Don’t forget to turn on your speakers. To adjust the volume, use the volume control at the bottom of the video window . Click and drag the circle in the center to the left for quieter or to the right for louder. If you want to watch the video again, click on the refresh button in the tool bar at the top of the window.


Next blog you and I will play with YouTube videos. If you feel adventurous, visit my YouTube page ( to see more videos on your own.

Back soon!
