The Mischke Interviews
Interview #3

Over the years, I have been interviewed many times. Three of these interviews, however, stand out in my memory as being most extraordinary. They are the long, fascinating conversations I had with radio host T.D. Mischke.

Mischke (as he is generally known) is one of the most interesting and talented radio hosts I have ever met. He has been broadcasting late at night from the U.S. Midwest since January 1994 and, in that time, he has gathered a huge cult following that extends throughout many states and into Canada. (At night, 50,000-watt radio signals travel a long way.)

If you want to listen to Mischke live some night, I have included a link at the bottom of the page.

So far, I have done three interviews with Mischke:

• Interview #1 — February 1, 2011
• Interview #2 — January 1, 2012
• Interview #3 — December 19, 2012

Let me invite you now to listen to Interview #3. (The other two will be available soon.)
