Wake Up with Mermaids, Sunday August 11th at 9 EST

I’ve been keeping a secret (sorta). A couple weeks ago the crew from CBS Sunday Morning came to my humble abode to interview me for a segment on mermaids! I got to sit knee-to-knee with the amazing Faith Salie who made me feel like a Mermaid Queen as we talked, walked and laughed. For any fan of this long-running show, you’ll be pleased to know that every person treated me with such graciousness and respect, from the camera man to the producer, and I had more fun doing an interview than I ever thought possible. Can’t wait to see the whole thing put together and grateful to have been part of it

Grab a coffee and watch it live, with me!

This Sunday, August 11th, be sure to watch! Faith went to Weekie Watchee, Coney Island and Varla’s parlour!

And remember, shows are archived on the site so you can watch it later, too….in case you stay up a little too late Saturday night. Ahem…

Swim Through the Murky Depths with Me and Jim Harold

Get out that mP3-pod-listening-device-computer-radio machine and listen to this lovely podcast. Then, throw off your shoes at the sands of a beach and go for a stroll while staring out at the sea and pondering the existence of mermaids. Not near the sea or a lake or any large body of water. Mores the pity on you! Go draw yourself a bath or fill up a bucket to soak your feet. It makes it much more fun to talk of mermaids. Last ditch, do the dishes with headphones on.
