When Leo Laporte called me in 2006 about co-hosting a podcast, he asked me how I envisioned the show. Simple, I said: As a conversation.
What I meant was that I wasn’t comfortable dictating from on high about how people should see the world. Instead, I saw the podcast, like my website, as more of a back-and-forth with readers/listeners. That I wasn’t an expert with all the answers, but rather someone whose real strength was communicating. And that I could learn as much from those readers and listeners as they could from me.
