The internet is an amazing tool. I sound like my dad when I say that, but the power of social networking cannot be denied.
Last St.Patrick's Day I called into a radio show and spoke with Martha Stewart. I found out that she likes matcha tea!
Yesterday, I was checking my tweets and saw that Martha Stewart Radio was taking calls for Emeril Lagasse's Sirius XM show called "Cooking with Emeril". The post was only 5 minutes old, so I thought, "Why not? I was on the air once, maybe I'll get through again." A producer answered, and I had to come up with a question on the spot. Emeril was talking with Joseph Bastianich, a New York restauranteur and vineyard owner. I had 2 seconds prior to going on air to come up with a question, so this was it.
"Have you seen the newest Disney movie set in New Orleans?" His answer, "Yes, I play one of the crocodiles, and making it was fun!" Phew. It wasn't a totally off base question after all.
