UPDATED: that hour was absolutely brutal. Sandler did an incredible job, but Shocked ducked the interview. She then tried to talk with Sandler via Twitter, later answered the phone but had her radio on, complained about the standard audio delay, and read random snippets of the statement she released yesterday, then hung up again and continued tweeting cryptically. After this latest episode I’m more convinced than ever that Michelle Shocked has had some kind of mental breakdown. I’m concerned about her safety and hope she gets the help she needs. Read David Badash’s report on the non-interview here, and watch video of the interview below.
ORIGINAL POST: Radio host Nicole Sandler will interview disgraced folk singer Michelle Shocked today for her online show, “Radio or Not,” at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time. (Yes, in 10 minutes.)
Journalist and blogger extraordinaire David Badash at the New Civil Rights Movement posted the live stream, and I’ve included a link here. I’ll be interested to hear Shocked try and explain herself, especially after audio of her anti-gay rant emerged yesterday which refuted her claims that she’d been “misinterpreted.”
