When she began taping our interview at noon today, Mimi Geerges, who has a radio show on XM-Sirius and a bunch of local public radio stations (see below), described Aaron Burr as a “scoundrel.”
Wait, I said. He wasn’t really a scoundrel.
Really? She answered. He was a traitor, wasn’t he?
And we were off. It was a great interview. She jumped around, kept changing the subject on me, and it stayed fresh and fun. I’ve had some great interviews on the trail for American Emperor, but this was right near the top. Keep an eye — and an ear — on Ms. Geerges. She knows her job.
