Kevin on the Radio: WXXI’s “Connections: The Writers Panel”

Radio debut? No problem.

Today, I was asked to join “Connections with Evan Dawson” on Rochester’s WXXI. The panel consisted of Eric Grode, NY Times writer and Newhouse School adjunct professor, and Andrea Levendusky, a local freelance writer and soon to be published author.

We bulldozed through many topics (e.g., how to improve as a writer, the arguments for and against teaching cursive, what are our favorite “eggcorns“), we answered phone calls, and even shared a few laughs. Before I knew it the hour was gone. Over. Boom. Just like that. And there I was, pouting, like a child given chocolate for the first time: YOU CAN’T JUST TAKE THIS AWAY.

Anywho, I had an amazing time. Thanks to Evan Dawson for the incredible opportunity. Now… who wants to start a podcast with me? Anyone? Hello?

  1. I love it. I actually did not know the term “eggcorn” before this show. It reminds me of a story John Prine tells of a woman asking him to play the song about “The Happy Enchilada.” It took him about. Then she said, “You know, ‘It’s a happy enchilada and you think you’re gonna drown.”

    The actual lyrics are, “It’s a half an inch of water, and you think you’re gonna drown.”

Don't be bashful (reply!)
