I’ve interviewed comedian Brian Regan a couple times this year, first in April for LAist and then last week for Bostonist. The always friendly and charming Regan was great again, actually I think the second interview went better than the first, maybe because I’m improving (hopefully).
Then a couple days after the interview went up, I got followed on Twitter by GridIronGoddess because of an LAist link I think (she’s got a great -ist idea, I hope it comes through). GridIronGoddess knows more about football than any of my guy friends, even the ones pretending to be sports geeks. Well she went to my post from the 15th and saw that I had interviewed Regan, who it turns out is a personal friend of hers. Ironically, the very night she read my blog post and Bostonist interview, she had been out to dinner with Regan’s wife and Brian called in to check in with her and to let her know how the Boston show went. It’s a small, small world.
The end result is that I have a new friend on Twitter, a real person, not some fake auto-follower, who likes stuff like Malcolm Gladwell, social networking and internet marketing geekery, and who happens to be friends with one of the greatest comedians around. It restores one’s faith in the system.
