I’ve been a commentator for KUAC, our local NPR station, and APRN, our statewide NPR affiliate. You’ll find a couple of samples in the links here.
Here’s a piece called “Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking.” It’s about Walt Whitman, writing poetry, and having kids, and how those things intersect. I wrote it as I was just starting to write Steam Laundry. It aired 4/6/2007.
Fairbanks Funk is about the urge we all get to leave Fairbanks during the month of February. It aired 2/17/2007.
When APRN used to put out AK, I was an occasional commentator. Here are links to some of the pieces I recorded for them. The links below play the whole show, so you’ll have the good fortune to listen to a little slice of Alaskan life.
10/06/2007: I interviewed my mother, who told a story about a family murder that she witnessed when she was a child.
06/23/2007: I wrote about fashion and Fairbanks, analyzing the deliberately disheveled look I cultivated when I was a cabin-dwelling graduate student.
04/28/2007: I read a piece about found poetry and the infamous Bible Baptist church sign here in Fairbanks.
