I’ve had quite a few appearances on the radio in the last couple weeks. You could have caught me talking about a Maoist insurgency on the Leonard Lopate show on WNYC, or a few weeks later talking about the global trade in human eggs on the same program.

I had an hour long chat with Betty Jean King at FreeMeNow radio about my last four years of researching Red Markets which gets very good about ten minutes in.  And this morning I was joined by David Sher the CEO of Elite IVF and international fertility agent on NHPR’s afternoon program “Word of Mouth” for some point-counterpoint action.

It is fun to do radio again, although I have to say that it can be a bit surreal to be on the opposite end of the microphone. I’m used to being the interviewer, not the interviewee. It will be good practice for when the book comes out in June 2011.
