I get pretty bad stage fright, so I was a nervous wreck during this interview. It went better than I expected though. I thought I would just totally space out.
That's what happened when I was interviewed on a nationally syndicated radio show. The DJ asked me a question, and I started to answer, but suddenly I totally forgot what I was talking about. I had no idea what he had asked me or what I was saying. I just started at him. The DJ looked at me, saw that I froze and started to motion wildy with his hands to make me start talking again.
After what felt like an eternity, I just started talking about something else. In post-production they fixed it and cut out the long pause. On the finished broadcast, all you hear is a quick pause while I'm talking about something, and then suddenly I am talking about something completely different. ;-)
Remind me never to do this sort of thing again.
