I’ve given a zillion interviews, of which about 50% are available. People forget to record, they screw up their sound, they post the first few minutes and then won’t post the rest, they don’t post in the first place, the site goes 404, yadda yadda.
If you know of any working interviews with me, live or written, which aren’t listed below, please email the link so I can include it. Even ones in which I come off like a goon; I’m not proud.

See also the Harping Monkey post commenting on the interview
Summer 2006: I notice that Andreas (Settembrini) has deactivated the YouTube clips of my interview with him in Berlin. Any chance of finding those, anyone?
Some time in 2006, I think: I did a really long written interview for the nordic magazine Imagonem, but they seem to have disappeared … can anyone Wayback it for me? (located and about to be added; also, internal content suggests it was at least partly written in 2004)
