This page is somewhat disorganized in that I now put occasional print, audio, and video interviews, which used to be separated, together by year.  The section at the very end is called Controversies; it is where I post letters from critics.  Scroll down to find whatever you are looking for.  Media interviews and reviews for specific books are on the pages for that book.  For podcasts and videos of presentations, look under Appearances and scroll down for Past Appearances.
