The folks at DC Cable have posted two more Q&A Cafe greatest hits on the YouTube. One is with Ben Bradlee, Sally Quinn and their son Quinn Bradlee. This is a rare interview with the family all together. They are candid, intimate and interesting and reveal the family dynamic. It was taped at Nathans.
The other Q&A Cafe episode that went up on YouTube last week is my interview with Tareq and Michaele Salahi. It's been highly controversial. A) because I interviewed them and B) because I interviewed them. Well, that's how interview programs work. The goal is to book the guest or guests who are most compelling at the moment, and at this moment -- between the White House gatecrashing episode and the debut of "Real Housewives of Washington DC" -- the Salahis were compelling. No apologies for this interview. In 11 years of shows, it was our most overbooked. In the smaller clips that were earlier on YouTube (this version is the whole show) there were thousands of views. This was taped at our new location, the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Georgetown.
I'm proud of both of these interviews. Can you tell how nervous I am? Ha! In both, I was quite nervous. Usually, ten minutes in, the nerves begin to calm.
Please book a seat at our next show: talking politics and political conventions with Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post and MSNBC, on Thursday, July 26,
