Moyers and Company
Mr. Moyers and I talked for over three hours in order to get this half-hour interview. I could have talked to him for days. He is the smartest, most compassionate, and curious journalist that I have ever encountered. I want him to adopt me.
Open Road Media
This is a lovely interview I did with the Open Road Media folks. After writing and publishing thousands of pages over the years, it's easy to forget certain sentences, paragraphs, and pages. And so, yes, I had forgotten the beautiful passage that I read in this video. I mustn't be too prideful, however, because there is also plenty of ugly writing that I've published and will not be reading aloud anytime soon.
The Colbert Report
This interview is, without a doubt, one of the highlights of my career (I can't get the interview to embed because I am a tech loser). All of my years as a debater, standup comedian, and performance poet came together in a five-minute burst of panic, quick thinking, punchlines, and joy. I still can't believe that I held my own against the supremely talented Colbert.
Here I am getting poetic, political, and overwrought about basketball.
The Big Think
Here's me getting semi-smart and partly-literary for a very cool web series.
My books continue to be among the most banned and challenged books in the USA. Here, I respond.

As part of Banned Books Week, I read from Jonathan Kozol's Savage Inequalities.
