“06880” Podcast: David Pogue

There might be someone in Westport who does more interesting things, meets more interesting people, has his hand in more projects, and reaches a wider audience, than David Pogue.

But I haven’t met him or her.

As a “CBS Sunday Morning” correspondent — “explainer,” he calls it — he covers any topic worth delving into, from cryptocurrency to how Ukrainians use technology in wartime.

He’s also been a PBS “Nova” star (that’s a pun he might make). He’s written about technology for the New York Times, Scientific American, Yahoo, and in more “Missing Manual” books than even he can count.

And that doesn’t count his decade as a Broadway conductor.

Hard to believe we covered all that — plus what brought him to Westport, and what keeps him here — in our 30-minute conversation at the Library. But that’s part of the Pogue magic. (He’s a magician too. No fooling.)

One response to ““06880” Podcast: David Pogue

  1. I once had the pleasure of participating in one of David Pogue’s sketches. He was filming at the Westport Library. My office was at the end of the hallway next to the book lift. David was to hide in the book lift (no easy feat) and jump out just as the stern librarian (played by me) comes walking down the hall and catches him. My one moment of fame. It was great fun! David Pogue has always been a huge supporter of the Westport Library.
