Radio personality Iolande V. Argent, aka “Dr. Ande,” has one of the liveliest interview shows on the Internet. Recently, I sat down to chat with her via telephone about HEIRESS STRANGLED IN MOLTEN CHOCOLATE AT NAZI SEX ORGY! and particularly some of the “trial by fire” experiences I had as a young reporter on the New York Post.

You can listen to the hour long interview just by clicking here. But one caveat. For a couple  of minutes there, we had trouble connecting. First I called in, and Dr. Ande wasn’t connected, even though the tape was rolling.Then Dr. Ande started her show and I had clicked off to try another number. But when we finally connected, the stories poured forth.
