Instructables on NPR's Here & Now 11/24/2008! Answered

I had an interview on Tuesday with Robin Young of NPR's Here & Now, a daily newsmagazine show from WBUR in Boston. It should air on Monday or Tuesday next week just before Thanksgiving - I'll post an update when they send me the exact date.

The theme was Thanksgiving, so we talked about Thanksgiving calculators, spreadsheets and Gantt charts, and turkey tek's awesomepies, desserts, and gravy fountain. The book got a mention, too! Now we'll see what makes the cut from a 30-minute interview to a 5-minute clip for the show.

The show is carried on these stations, and of course you can always listen to the podcast on the web.

Update: the segment aired Monday, November 24. Listen on-line here!

I just hope that this site doesn't go the way digg.com went.

Probably not, as they're very different sites. What did you have in mind?

*sigh* I couldn't quite tune in WHYY and since the local station WITF didn't carry it, I will have to listen to it later on the podcast.

 VERY nice (I FINALLY got to listen to it).

NPR will bring awesome publicity for Instructables. I look forward to listening to the interview. Here and Now is one of the programs that I most often listen to; aside from the morning news in the car ride to school.
