Triangulation Scores Big Time

Triangulation is a one on one interview show conducted by Leo Laporte. Unscripted, frank, but above all fascinating it is a great example of how you get the best stories. Of course, it helps that Leo knows the people is talking to, read their works, and takes a genuine interest. My favourites were all recent.

Science fiction writer and technology journalist, Jerry Pournelle, for instance

American singer-songwriter, guitarist and inventor, Roger McGuinn, founding member of the Byrds. Roger once surprised us all by turning up at Radio Netherlands. He was a listener to my show and wanted to drop by. What a great guy. (They should re-record the music he plays in this episode. Skype is useless for music).

and author of Predictably Irrational and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, behavioural economist Dan Ariely. Met him at DLD in Germany ages back. Always entertaining, funny and surprising.

The TWIT network needs help in spreading the word about these productions. There's more to the network than just a couple of flagship shows.
