I’ve been asked to do a radio interview at 11:30 am ET (or so) today with Brian Lehrer of WNYC, which is a radio station in…wait for it…New York City.  (Yeah, the radio station "WNYC" was kind of a giveaway on that one, wasn’t it?)

This segment will be an interview between Brian, me and Atrios, and I couldn’t be more thrilled.  Love, luv, LOVE Duncan — and being able to talk shop with him, and with Brian Lehrer, who is a thoughful and well-informed host who encourages intelligent dialogue rather than vapid invective…it ought to be a great discussion.

There is going to be some great debate among the guests preceding us as well, discussing the future of the Democratic party, with the likes of Donna Brazile and NY Congressman Major Owens, Eli Pariser of Moveon PAC and Matt Bennett of Third Way.  They’ve asked Atrios and me on to discuss not only the future of the Democratic party as we see it, but also the growing influence of blogs on politics.

You can listen to streaming audio of the show at the WNYC home page — the Brian Lehrer page has easy click-through buttons so that even the tech impaired (like me!) should have no problem with it.

Call me crazy, but I bet we get a question on the Lamont/Lieberman race.  They’ll be taking audience call-ins, I’m told, so if you have a question, the number is 212-433-9692 (or 212 433 WNYC). 

UPDATE:  Interesting angle on net neutrailty from Vinton Cerf (Who currently works for Google, but really is one of the fathers of the internet as we know it.).  He’s looking net neutrality through an anti-trust lens, which has huge implications for providers who would attempt content control or other limitations on the flow of information.  Veddy interesting…and I’d love thoughts from folks who have worked anti-trust cases or internet content issues.

UPDATE #2:  Thanks to reader me to me for a reminder to also put radio dial information on for folks in the listening area:  Airs weekdays at 10AM on 93.9 FM and AM 820 and Tuesdays through Saturdays at 1AM on AM 820.
