Last Saturday, at a party in East Amsterdam, I met a guy really quickly and I mentioned that I would like to do a podcast. I don't remember his name. It was late and I'd had several drinks (and, wow, did I wake up with a thumper of a headache). I thought I should start putting it out there that I would like to do a podcast. I've listened to several on a regular basis and I really enjoy the ones with two hosts. They can bounce subjects off one another.
This guy was not the key to my podcasting career. He was just a friend of a guy in my writer's group. He was sort of wacky and interesting looking - giant nose and long hair. At first, I thought he was the boyfriend of the guy from my writer's group. I told the host, "I thought Kai might be gay. Then I saw him walk in with his boyfriend. That's sort of cool."
The host looked at me and said, "That's not his boyfriend. Kai's straight and his friend has a girlfriend."
I shrugged and said, "They sort of make a cute couple."
Right now isn't even really the best time to start a podcast - for me. But I don't mind looking and talking about it.
