NPR reporter Neda Ulaby has a piece on I Am Legend that will air tomorrow on NPR’s All Things Considered. She interviewed me about the book, the previous adaptations, and the story’s relevance to post-apocalyptic fiction in general.
I’m not sure how much of my contributions will make it into her piece, but we talked for about 45 minutes, and I think I gave her some good quotes. (And she seemed quite happy with the results.)
If you’d like to listen to the piece, it’s supposed to air tomorrow. In the New York City area, it looks like it airs at 4 PM on WNYC 93.9 FM. For other areas, check out NPR’s broadcast schedule. Or, if you just want to listen to it online, the show should be available at 7 PM. Once it’s available, you should be able to find it here, or via the archives page. Theoretically, this should be the permalink (or at least will be once the show airs).
We pre-recorded my contributions to the piece last Wednesday at the Rutgers Livingston Campus TV studio (in a sound booth in the studio; they didn’t film me or anything). Since Neda’s in Washington, D.C., she called up on the phone and they piped her voice into the headphones they gave me to wear. So her sound was recorded on her end; my sound was recorded on mine, files are sent around, and production magic happens.
I’m curious to hear how it turned out.
