I will be a guest of ABC's 891Book Club

I received an e-mail a few days ago from the producer of the show. She happened to come upon my post, Cover the Life of Pi, where I wrote about my experience visiting the set of the movie.

She thought that it'll be interesting for me to come on the show.

To be honest, I've been on the other side of the mic; in 1999, while I was a journalism student in Curtin University, I worked in the community radio show as a reporter and actually interviewed people (ministers, activists, the lot) and even acted as producer for the show. I'm used to being on the other side, the one asking the questions. I'm not used to being asked questions!

Well, I'm not sure how big a part I'll play in the show, but I'm intrigued to witness how Australian journalism is done. If I'm not mistaken, I'm one of the book reviewers that they invite to the show - these book reviewers are often members of the radio station's book club.

You can listen live to the show at 2.30pm (Adelaide time - 12pm Malaysian time) today (Friday, March 1, 2013) at their live stream: http://www.abc.net.au/adelaide/programs/webcam_radio.htm?streamFile=localadelaide&streamTitle=Conversations
