Conversations with Calliope- Appearing on the Radio


JOE: Good morning Calliope.
CALLIOPE: Good morning Joe. How did the radio show go?
JOE: Quite well I thought.
CALLIOPE: Tell me about it.
JOE: I have appeared on the radio before. Although I was not sure exactly what to expect, I didn't feel nervous.
CALLIOPE: What put you at ease?
JOE: I arrived early and watched the interview before mine. I had also met Wanda Frank, the host of the show and knew her style.
CALLIOPE: What happened on the air?
JOE: She asked me to introduce myself and my book, Navigating Life.
CALLIOPE: Then what?
JOE: I had sent her a brochure before the show and she chose several points I had outlined to explore further.
CALLIOPE: Anything else?
JOE: She wanted to know what were the major influences in what I write now.
CALLIOPE: What did you tell her?
JOE: I had been thinking about this on the way to the show. I told her I had nine years in the seminary and monastery to think about life, especially my own. Then I worked for thirty-five years as a psychologist helping people make sense of their lives. All in all, a good experience. Talk with you tomorrow.
