I’ve done lots of interviews over the years.
They were all good, but most got edited down for documentaries, from hours worth of footage to a few seconds here and there. So frustrating!
Here are some of the most recent, available-for-me-to-link-to interviews.
My list of Hazel’s Top Menendez Media Picks includes some things that did not involve me, and also excludes many of my own not-favorite interviews.
One of these days maybe I’ll add in more 1990’s items, most of which are not available on the internet.
- Hazel on KABC Radio 11-17-95 (11:40 min.) My thoughts and predictions during the second trial.
As it turns out, podcasts (where I am the only guest, that is) are the antidote to all those years of being interviewed extensively for TV, only to be edited down to a few soundbites here and there!
