Since you've done a story - and replayed it many times - on how you make people sound better than they are in your interviews by careful editing, it would be easy to remove, "pissed-off," "kiss-ass" and "get the hell in here," so that my kids don't have to hear it as I drive them from here to there with OTM on... Thanks.

@Jon It is in the comments section of the "Share your unpaid internship stories!" article. It is the comment on the bottom. looks like it was the first comment. Here is what he said about that job (I copied and pasted the answer here)

• I was offered a part-time position.
• I declined the part-time position.

I walked away thinking, "I never want to work in radio," and haven't. Ironically, I've run into some people from the second station, and they've laughed it off as if it was just a bump in the road.

Where's the story about what Michael Cohan did when offered a part time job at the radio station? I searched the site and nothing. Where do I look?

Why did Brooke Gladstone and Alex Goldman use rude language during the segment? I found the language unnecessary and unprofessional.
