Yesterday, a story I originally told on The Daily Ping almost 13 years ago was featured in a Weekend Edition segment on NPR about “true life ghost stories.” Have a listen:
This marked my third time on NPR (sorta). On August 6, 2005, I was featured in a piece about unions’ role in the tech industry, a topic I was woefully unprepared to discuss. But NPR corresnpondent Frank Langfitt (now a Shanghai correspondent) caught me to chat in the parking lot outside of work.
Just two months later, NPR’s remembrance of civil rights (and anti-rap) activist C. Delores Tucker aired on my 30th birthday. It featured an uncredited segment of an interview I did with her from 8 or 9 years earlier.
I’m hoping that my fourth NPR appearance will also have nothing to do with the previous ones.
