Raina is a Person You Don’t Know

with 2 comments

Well, you may know her, but she’s one of the first guests on our friend Eugene’s new podcast interview site, People You Don’t Know.  Here’s his explanation of the site: 

PYDK is a semi-professional interview show where I talk to normal, everyday people about their story, where they’re from, how they got to where they are now, and their views, opinions, and beliefs on politics, culture, media, art, or anything else that comes to mind. At the end of each interview, they recommend someone else I don’t know who’d be interesting to talk to.

To be completely honest, I was initially skeptical about how much entertainment value he might be able to squeeze out of semi-random people in this format.  But I’ve since listened to every one of these podcasts so far, and each is compelling in its own way, due in equal parts to the folks being interviewed and Euge’s engaging, creative interviewing style.  The guy’s cranking them out at an amazing pace, too.

Raina’s interview (about librarians, feminism, and the phenomenon of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl) is here.

  2. Incidentally, I (Dave) posted the update, which probably isn’t clear, since the theme we’re using doesn’t include author. We’ve been trying to indicate authorship via categories, but since this update was posted by me, but is about Raina, the shortcomings of this system (and theme) show through.

    Annoyingly, we like how the theme looks, so it’s sticking around despite this flaw.
