While at Hillsdale, I gave an interview to the school paper, the Collegian. It’s funny how you seem to forget you’re being recorded, even if the iPhone is right there on the table. I sort of just kicked back and, well, bloviated. I remember transcribing an on-the-record call with Anthony Bourdain, who let loose upon Wolfgang Puck (“c—sucker” as well as a Nazi comparison). I also recall another chef who digressed about his love of women. And actor Joe Pantoliano was refreshingly candid about his time on the Sopranos (telling me how he pleaded with David Chase not to allow his character to sleep with Janice Soprano—”not Janice!”). Luckily, I wasn’t as candid.
