…to Michael Savage right now, if you have access to the show. I didn’t realize it would be airing tonight, but I was interviewed and I’ll be talking on the show for a few minutes more.

[ADDENDUM: I’ve had several requests for me to post the show, or an excerpt from it, here. I have no access to archives of the show, but I did manage to grab a recording of some of my portion. If I can figure out how to do it (since I’m such a technical non-whiz), I’ll try to post it on the blog within a couple of days.

As I wrote in the comments section of this post, and for those who are a little surprised at the venue, it was just a straight interview on two topics. The first was the Seidman piece in the NY Times about trashing the Constitution. The second was the political change experience, both mine and others. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts.]

    Caught your interview, came to your site. Looks familiar… Been linked by instapundit before? I plan on making more stops!

  2. Boomer Says:

    Just heard your interview on Savage. Great job! I’ll be coming back here often!

  3. Brian Kolling Says:

    Just listened to you on Savage Nation.
    You are a real American.
    Liberal Democrats are moving quickly and with force to destroy America.
    May the GOD of the Bible CURSE them and DESTROY them !
    And the same especially to their leaders.

    By chance, tuned in to Savage and heard you. Now I’m here and shall return.

  5. David Says:

    Heard you on Savage. Look forward to reading your story

  6. Darrell Says:

    Good job Neo, see if you can get a podcast to put up for those of us that missed it.

  7. Richard Says:

    Heard you on the “Prophet Savage Show”. I Welcome You.

    Good gawd. Is this a parody? I mean, I realize I’ve not been paying as much attention lately …but neo on Savage?


  10. Inkraven Says:

    Michael Savage was a regular on my local talk radio station until a couple months ago. They replaced him in that time slot with Jerry Doyle (played Michael Garibaldi on Babylon 5). It made me sad.

    Do you have a link to a replay?

  12. GordonC Says:

    Hi Neo,
    I’d love to hear your interview but I cannot listen to Savage any longer than it takes to change the dial. A link to your part will be fantastic.

  13. holmes Says:

    Good work!

  14. southpaw Says:

    Neo send a link if you can; sorry i missed it.

  15. neo-neocon Says:

    davisbr: actually, it was just a straight interview on two topics. The first was the Seidman piece in the NY Times about trashing the Constitution. The second was the political change experience. Just the facts, ma’am, just the facts.

  16. mizpants Says:

    I didn’t think Michael Savage was your style, Neo — not even for a straight interview.

  17. neo-neocon Says:

    mizpants: you are correct. Very few talk shows are my style, and I don’t listen to any of them ordinarily. Savage I’m not that familiar with, either, but this was an invitation, and I certainly wouldn’t refuse a chance to talk to a large audience. And, as I said, the interview was very straight, question-answer, question-answer, and it went just fine.

    Actually, I got the impression that Savage himself is a political changer and an ex-New Yorker. So that may have been why he was interested.

    Picking up some new readers!!!

  19. rickl Says:

    I wonder how he found out about your site. Does he or one of his producers read it? Did one of the regular commenters here tell him about it?

  20. thomass Says:

    If you move fast radio stations usually have their shows up for a couple days on their website. If one station doesn’t have it, you can check others that run his show until you find it.

    “I wonder how he found out about your site. Does he or one of his producers read it? Did one of the regular commenters here tell him about it?”

    He came up in comments a few times. Maybe he, or his producer, found the site in a google search to see what people were saying about him.

  22. neo-neocon Says:

    Actually, I think he was interested in the Seidman op-ed, and was reading opinions online about it.

  23. Ed Bonderenka Says:

    I’m not a fan of Savage, but sometimes I stumble on to him and he’s not narcissistic but doing a thoughtful interview.
    Would like to hear yours.
    I sent you an e-mail to reply to me and I will explain an easy way to post audio.
    I use it on my blog.

  24. W Krebs Says:

    Here’s a link to the show on YouTube.


    Neo comes on at 1:28.

  25. rickl Says:

    I listened, and that was a good interview.

    I’ve never heard your voice before. That was interesting. A little bit funny, too. No, don’t be self-conscious. Nothing to worry about. It’s just my preconcieved notions and expectations.

  26. neo-neocon Says:

    rickl: thanks.

    Well, I made a few intentional jokes, so I hope those are the things you thought funny.

    Readers who used to listen to the Sanity Squad podcasts way back when are quite familiar with my voice. Here are some we did on blog talk radio, after we left PJ, and here are some of the even older ones we did on PJ. Of course, many of the topics are outdated, but there’s more than you ever wanted to hear of my voice!

  27. Ed Bonderenka Says:

    Well I went to all this effort before I saw that Krebbs found you on youtube.


  28. Minta Marie Morze Says:

    Thanks, Mr. Bonderenka—you made it really easy to hear our Neo’s interview!

    Neo—Great interview! A lot to think about. (And congratulations for not filling it with “uh”s.) I hope you get a lot of new readers, you deserve them.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
