I’ll bet you missed my recent debut on San Francisco’s KPIX-TV.
I’d like to think it was only because the show aired at 5 a.m. on a Sunday morning.
That’ll let you view me, Woody Weingarten, and the first two parts of a four-segment half-hour show, “Mosaic,” in which I was interviewed along with Rose Barlow, new executive director of the San Rafael-based organization, Zero Breast Cancer.
The interviewer was Rabbi Eric Weiss, who heads the Bay Area Jewish Healing Center.
If half a loaf is better than none, surely half a TV show must be better than none as well.
For those keeping score, I readily admit that Rose is prettier than I, and her native South African accent is more alluring and ear-catching than my New Yawk intonations.
But we both come off well, I believe.
Actually, I think this is the best interview I’ve done so far, most likely due to Weiss’ soft but evocative questioning—aided by my perception that he was a perfect on-air audience, too, truly invested in learning more about the subject.
The most comprehensive quickie course about the disease and male caregiving, of course, is to read my new VitalityPress book, “Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner’s breast cancer.”
