My Shot at the Big-Time

My Shot at the Big-Time

Michael Mandel

..otherwise known as the Today Show (weekend edition). Why anyone would want to talk to an economics journalist at 7AM on a Christmas-y Saturday morning is beyond me, but there I was last weekend, sharing a green room with an all-girls a capella chorus. My topic--wages, Christmas shopping, optimism or pessimism for next year.

I had a good time, by the way. The interviewer was energetic and smart--a lot better than most--and the segment was 3 1/2 minutes, not bad when it comes to this kind of stuff.
