Imma be on the radio this afternoon, 3:00 to 4:00, talking with Jean Feraca on the Here on Earth show's "Food Friday," on Wisconsin Public Radio: http://www.wpr.org/hereonearth/archive_111014k.cfm . I'm going to try to retain some semblance of calm, but in reality I'm absolutely giddy about this opportunity. I'm kind of a WPR groupie, and Here on Earth is my favorite WPR show (though I enjoy the whole weekday line-up--Joy Cardin, Kathleen Dunn, Veronica Rueckert*, and Larry Meiller).
It's a call-in show, and I'd really love to hear from Trout Caviar readers if you're out there listening. You can hear it on the Ideas Network of Wisconsin Public Radio, or stream it live from their website (I'm certain that most of you are much more clever about this sort of thing than I am; there's a "Listen" tab just above the blurb about me and my idyllic childhood). If you'd care to listen to the show later, it will be archived promptly after airing.
Okay. Wish me luck.
* One of Veronica Rueckert's interviews led to this lively Trout Caviar discussion a while back, about where food and cooking fit (or don't fit) in the realm of the aesthetic: http://troutcaviar.blogspot.com/2010/12/is-cooking-art-can-food-be-art-discuss.html
