Ray Bradbury on Madmen | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios

 

"Nobody else is going to give a damn what you're doing,

so you need a few other people like yourself"

- Ray Bradbury as told to two college kids on road trip in 1972.

 

In the autumn of 2012,

Lisa Potts rediscovered -- literally, behind her dresser --

a taped cassette of a long-lost interview with author Ray Bradbury

that she made as a college student journalist back in 1972.

 

The recording was made

in a car plying the Los Angeles freeways

between Bradbury's home in West L.A.

and Chapman College in Orange County.

 

Potts and a fellow student named Chadd Coates

were taking Bradbury to present a lecture.

 

Bradbury had a lot of advice for Lisa and Chadd.

 

On tape we get to hear Bradbury

telling the students about the keys to friendship,

why he was afraid of himself and would never drive,

his keys to writing and telling a story,

why Mars was the center of his fascination,

what's the secret to love, and why he called himself "a madman".
