When I was a freshman at Wesleyan, I was intent on being part of the radio station. I couldn't do a show my first year because of scheduling conflicts with my potential DJ partner, so I took my energies to the station's publication, WESU Magazine. I wrote a hilariously cliched meta piece on how music journalism was dissatisfying to me because it could never emulate how I actually felt about music, but my crowning moment as a wannabe writer was my one-question interview with Travis Morrison of The Dismemberment Plan. Crazy to think that eight years on, I was given the opportunity to interview him and Joe Easley, the band's drummer, for real. Oh life.
