  6. Hi, just came across your blog. Some of the folks you interview are friends and colleagues of mine. I teach in Toronto sometimes, and I'm friends with some Toronto folks like Matthew Remski and Colin Matthews, maybe you know (of) them. I appreciate your intelligence, candor, and authenticity, and wonder if you'd like to do an interview. You can browse my book here, I think you might enjoy it:
