Here's a link to the show. The piece is called "Jay-Z vs. the Sample Trolls," and it concerns the ways runaway copyright has affected hip-hop. I'll be hosting next week as well, and I'm totally excited about it. Thanks to (Sound of Young America listener) Andy Bowers of Slate for thinking of me.

That's a guesstimate in the year department. Seems like local Bay Area TV. Fascinating to see Sly relatively sober during a very dark time for him.

Me on Radio Open Source tonight...

| 0 comments

I was a guest on Radio Open Source with Christopher Lydon tonight, talking about the roots of Borat, and what his Sacha Baron Cohen's work means in the context of contemporary society and the history of comedy. Open Source is a great show, which is distributed to many many public radio stations around the country. Mal Sharpe was also be on the show to talk about his career as a prankster.

Click here for the MP3 stream. If you feel like waiting, I think I'll add the show to the podcast feed Thanksgiving weekend.

Anyone have any bright ideas for holiday-themed guests?

Thinking about putting together a new holiday special.

There is absolutely, positively no sex in the champagne room.
