Triskaidekaphobia is the fear of the number 13. I’m beginning to understand this fear.
I had first scheduled a guest for episode number 13 several weeks ago. The day before we were going to talk, he contacted me to report that he had been clobbered by that flu that is making the rounds.
“No worries,” I thought. “I’ll just move my next interview up a week.” That worked fine, on paper anyway. Just as we were about to begin that interview, the school nurse called my guest to let her know that her kid was sick. So we had to reschedule.
I decided not to risk sickening any other guests. So this episode is a quick retrospective interview with myself, looking back at the first dozen episodes of this podcast.
