first television appearance

In early December, I went down to a Manhattan studio to tape an appearance on The Agenda with Steve Paikin, a Canadian news journalism show. The show aired last night, and since I haven't watched it I'm still hoping that I didn't say anything too foolish. Follow the link if you want to watch. The show is around 40 minutes long.

The topic of the show was apocalypticism in pop culture, based loosely around the silliness of 2012 doomsday scenarios. You know, the Mayan calandar sorta-kinda ends so the world must be about to. The same way the world blows up each time our Gregorian calendar runs out of days in December. Oh, wait. That doesn't happen. Well, it won't be happening on December 21, 2012 either.

It was a lot of fun doing the taping: all of the others were clever and fun, and I appreciate the invitation from our good neighbors to the north. The is the first step in our all-important quest to end up on The Colbert Report. :)
