Interview with BBC Radio 5's Outriders!

On Tuesday September 27th, Jamillah Knowles of the BBC Radio 5 Live’s Outriders, a show dedicated to exploring the frontiers of the web, took some time to chat with me about Cupid and Eros and creating Web Series independently.

To say that being on the air/intertubes of the BBC was a ridiculous geek thrill for me would be putting it midly.  Jamillah was a fantastic interveiwer and I had a great time chatting with her.  Hopefully listeners found it fun.

One of the coolest things about how this came about is that it was actually a C&E fan named Seth Skaggs, who set the whole thing up.  Seth, who tweets as @armlessphelan, discovered C&E via social media and since then he's been a great supporter of the show, on and offline.  He put us in touch with Jamillah after having had a chat with her over twitter.  Just one example of how truly awesome it is be able to interact so directly with fans.

And as an added bonus, Jamillah let me post some web series picks of my own, so I got to give some shoutouts to shows and creators I dig.  All in all, a pretty great experience.
