From interviewer to interviewee

I've interviewed a lot of people in the past 10 or so years, but I've rarely been interviewed myself. Which is why I was a bit tickled when, just before Thanksgiving, I received an e-mail from a student at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.

The student said he was working on an article about the changing attitudes toward LGBT characters in video games and, because of the articles I've written for The Advocate and other publications, he'd like to ask me a few questions related to the subject.

I know how difficult it can be to get people on the phone, especially when you're a student, so I agreed to talk with him whenever he's free. Of course, I have yet to receive a response so it may never happen. If it does, I'll see if he'll let me post the final product--or least the portions that include my quotes :)
