Full Disclosure Interviews
Being frequently interviewed I generally insist on doing so via email so that my words are not summarized inaccurately or misquoted. Articles today are typically quite brief, so few lines of what I’ve written end up in the final published pieces, though some are refreshingly in-depth and include a majority, or rarely the entirety, of my reply. I thought it would be of interest to our readers to have my complete responses to the various questions which can remain in our archive for future reference. Welcome to “Full Disclosure”!
