Last year Gail Pepin interviewed me for the ProArms Podcast, and it finally got released this week!
I’m pretty sure the delay was due to the amount of editing required. We were up at the Firearms Academy of Seattle, and Gila Hayes had insisted that I try a dessert she’d made – some sort of brownie mocha torte. Near as I can tell it starts with a 55 gallon drum of concentrated chocolate extract which is somehow crammed into an 8″ square cake pan. I usually don’t eat such rich (and sugary and caffeinated) desserts, and it left me ‘wired’ for a couple of hours. You can actually hear me slow down toward the end as the effects wore off. My wife thought it was hilarious. Some of the sillier stuff was thankfully left on the cutting room floor (free tip: never do an interview while on a sugar high, unless you want to sound like a deranged chipmunk.)
Most common phrase not heard in the interview: “you can edit that out, right?” I’m sure I added immeasurably to Gail’s blooper reel!
Much as I like bragging about myself, the cool thing is that the other interview on this episode is with Rob Pincus! Rob’s interview was done a little over a month ago, just after I finished his Instructor Development class, and Gail thought the two interviews would make a good match. She’s right as usual. (Thanks to the mocha torte, this is the only time you’ll ever hear me able to talk nearly as fast as Rob!)
