I'm a total dork, and one of the traits that tends to come with this era's coastal, quasi-sophisticated, self-absorbed, iPhone-y dorkdom is an affection for public radio. No joke, the Nag used to tease me so much about introducing conversations with "So I heard this story on NPR..." that I now have a complex about it. I'd be all, "Ummm, I heard this story ... on ... the radio..." Lucky for me I don't like talking to her* (IN YOUR FACE!).
With that all said, I was pretty excited when WHYY reporter (how cool does that sound?!) Elizabeth Fiedler asked me to contribute to a story she was putting together about the Phillies trade deadline moves.
In it, I (because I'm an idiot) provide the following quote:
"My first bit of advice would be to get the dog-getting-run-over imagery out of your head.."NOW you're totally intrigued. Click here to read the whole thing, or click the awesome image below. And donate to your local public radio/tv/web providers.

Also, that time we were mentioned in a Moth story.
