Meg on Forum on KQED at 10am!

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

** Update: The podcast is live! It was an hour long interview, if you can believe it! And I only needed a little nap by the end.**

Hi All!

So it looks like I’ll have a chance to whip out my NPR voice one more time, and wear some super exciting headphones this morning, as I join the Bay Area’s major local NPR news show, Forum, as a panelist at 10am. We’ll be talking about weddings, cultural changes sweeping weddings during the recession, and the agony and the ecstasy of weddings. I’ll sharing the mic with Kathryn of Snippet & Ink, so you know it’s going to be good.

You can listen locally at 88.5 FM in the Bay Area, or online at KQED. And I’ll update with the podcast when it goes up after the show.

Listen in, yes? Chatting with y’all via Radio is my favorite thing ever.

      I know. I was pleased. We’d nixed the Chicken Dance as a bad idea before hand, and then they did a bang up job on music choice.
