PEEK co-blogger on the radio tonight

On Tuesday's and Thursday's you probably notice a slight uptick in the quality of PEEK posts. Tuesdays feature Shakespeare's Sister (Melissa McEwan) and Thursdays, Majikthise (Lindsay Beyerstein).

Tonight (Friday) at 8pm est, Lindsay is scheduled to be thrown to the wolves at Fox News Radio, on a John Gibson Show segment called "Blue Blogapalooza."

After receiving advice from TalkLeft's Jeralyn Merritt that all publicity is good publicity (case in point: you're reading about it now...), Lindsay writes:


I also have a real-life example to draw on. I grew up accompanying my father to hostile interviews. Dad is always going on right wing radio to explain why drugs should be legalized or why near death experiences don't prove the existence of God. Dad always likes to say that his job is to be the skunk at the garden party.
The trick is to stand your ground and not take it too seriously. It's political theater. It's going to be fun. Nobody likes knock-down drag 'em out rhetorical combat more than I do.
Listen in [HERE] and give Lindsay some love on the line: 1-888-788-9910. (Majikthise)
