On the BBC

The BBC called me today for a little quickie live radio interview with someone named Anita. Here’s a slightly abridged transcript:

Anita: Don’t amateur readers suck?

Me: Nope.

The end. Lol. The intern, or whoever she was, who called yesterday to make sure I’d be home for an interview asked a lot more questions, and more interesting questions :) I’m not inclined to track down the audio online, but it’s probably there somewhere. I was on after a discussion of homeopathy, middle of the night UK time I guess, either late Thursday or early Friday.

    Hey, Kara, I just discovered LibriVox yesterday, and have gotten like four books that you’ve read. It doesn’t matter to me that you’re not a professional reader, I still think you’re good. I linked to yoursite, and libriVox in my LJ, so hopefully a lot of the other blind people I know, (I”m blind myself), will check out both sites. What made you want to volunteer to read? I think that’s great. The email address I gave is actually mine, so if you’d like to email me, that’d be cool, but no, you don’t suck. :)

    Hi Gina, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the books! I volunteer because I love to read out loud, I love to share my enjoyment of great books, and I find it immensely satisfying to know that people all over the world can listen to my recordings for free and with no restrictions whatever. Comments and email from listeners really mean a lot to me :) Thanks for the nice mention on your LJ!
