Yesterday I spent most of the day on a "radio tour" of USA appearing on 8 different radio shows to publicize the release of the book Why Sh*t Happens. The funny thing about US radio is that they can't say the title of the book. The solutions used by the hosts of each show were kinda funny. They called it "Why Shtuff Happens," or "Why ess-aitch- asterisk-tee Happens," or even "Why Shaaaaah Happens." The hosts of one show had a long discussion with me about it, saying they preferred the European title "The Undercover Scientist." Well, it remains to be seen if Rodale's decision on the title is a good one, but it's certainly attracting attention. These are the shows I've been on so far; I'll be on another bunch tomorrow.
