    This was an excellent interview, plenty of practical wisdom for those who haven’t been reading The Magazine for the past two and half decades, and plenty for those who have.

  2. Jacob Johnson says:

    For many, probably most, modern-day journalists, the point at which they learned that a man with such unfashi0nable views got to speak to Lou Reed would be the occasion for calling Dad to borrow more money for therapy!

    This is one of the best interviews I have seen in quite some time.
