Dr. Tennant’s Verbal Highs is a podcast that comes from a kitchen bench in Kingsland, Auckland. It’s podcasted weekly and the host is Lewis Tennant. The latest episode, # 37 features…Me! I’m the guest.
I was up in Auckland for the weekend and Lewis and I had been in touch about it – we are around the same age and lived in Wellington at the same time for a few years; we have a lot of mutual friends, we’re friends on Facebook but this was the first time actually meeting.
It was a rainy Saturday morning and I got dropped off at Lewis’ place by my brother. Knocked on the door, was welcomed in, sat at the stool at the bench in the kitchen and we were pretty much into it, recording.
I talked – a lot more than I thought I would – about my early university years and what a total failure I was. We got into all sorts of stuff – a lot of talk about reaction to reviews, and the pile-on attitude of angry people.
Great to meet Lewis, stayed on for a yarn after, will expect a return-favour at some point and will have him as a guest on Sweetman Podcast. But for now I wanted to share the current episode of Dr. Tennant’s Verbal Highs. Followers of my writing and my podcast might be interested in this yarn. (Or not).
