Cool, thanks for posting that. I remember hearing about the Gene Simmons interview after I missed it, but it was pulled from the NPR website as well as the Kiss site right away citing copyright and what-not - so I never got to hear it. Leave it to YouTube users...
I have to say, though, Gene totally owns her in this one, IMO. She let it get personal and broke down. The guy may be an ass, but I also would like to have heard more about him and his perspectives and less about how offended TG was.
Whether you're Ron Anderson or me(Darwin, my real name, too), I think you'll be interested in Terry's show tonight. It is about recycling, junkyards, reuse and more. She interviews the author of
Junkyard Planet: Travels in the Billion-Dollar Trash Trade
by Adam Minter
His family background from his grandma's time is making money/living scavenging in junkyards and he obviously has a powerful environment concerns, as do we all (right Ron?). He is quite willing to consider efficiency and monetary and scalability tradeoffs between throw-away, reuse, recycle and whatever.
Sorry to use Ron, whom I never met, as foil, but I hope I've been fair and representative.
