Interview with Greg Behrendt

We always laugh when Greg pops into the radio show, because the guy is just a damned fashion plate. I've told him that he's the only guy I know who can truly rock the scarf. It's true.

I've always had mega-respect for people who thrive in multiple formats in their life. With Greg Behrendt, that means he kicks ass in several artistic arenas. He's an acclaimed stand-up comic, he worked as a script consultant for Sex and The City, and he's a talented musician. (The dude is in a ska/surf/punk band, for chrissakes.)

Oh, and he writes. Very well. And very successfully.

We sat down at Comedy Works in Greenwood Village, CO a while back, just a few hours before he went on stage, and we talked about some pretty cool stuff. Have a listen.

Interview with Veronica Roth

I like what the author of the Divergent series has to say about the fallout of her sudden fame. You might think that the pressure to succeed would be lifted, but that's not always the case. It's an interesting perspective you should check out.

The interview itself took place right as the first book - Divergent - was beginning to take off, so this was pre-sequels and even pre-movies. Hell, you can tell from the photo that it's been a while.

And it's a quick chat, because we both had other panels/interviews at this conference in Veronica's hometown of Chicago. Enjoy.
