Pressfield and Instapundit
One of the blogosphere’s few true 800 lb gorillas, Professor Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit fame, interviews best selling novelist Steven Pressfield:
For one thing, I hadn’t realized Reynolds does short, Larry King-style vignettes. Considering that the MSM and the social media crowd have been going around the last few years saying “blogging is dead”, bloggers who can roll out professional quality television type productions without anyone batting an eye testifies to the durability of the medium.
Secondly, Steve probably sold more books with an Instapundit appearance than any other media venue, with the possible exception of a NYT book review.

That’s neat. I have also seen quite a few weapons guys make youtube shows that are pretty well made. As a blogger, I have a lot of respect for folks who can dedicate the time to putting something like that together.
Awhile back, one of my buddies was pumping out a really cool podcast where he interviewed all sorts of interesting folks in my industry. Guys like Eeben Barlow, Doug Brooks, Andy Bearpark, Tim Lynch, etc., all were interviewed from a contractor point of view, and they were really fun to listen to. It would be fun to see the same thing in this kind of format.

Do you have a link to the Eeben Barlow podcast? I’d really like to hear that one!
