Here’s Jeff’s recent interview on the Toronto Jay Show, on ThatChannel.com (April 9, 2010), in which he discusses Grouch on a Couch, the local poetry scene and the mysterious presence of multiple hats.

Jeff is on starting at about 12:40, until about 23:10.

Here’s Jeff’s first interview with New York City-based host Eric L. Jones on BlogTalkRadio.com (August 19, 2007), in which he talks about Guilt Pasta and dares to compare Brampton to Albany. There are also a few tracks from his first CD (Cracktastic!) on the show, along with some funky music:

And here’s a link to Jeff’s interview with Robin Vaughan-Williams on the Spoken Word Antics radio show on Sheffield Live!, in Sheffield, England (recorded March 13, 2007; aired the following April 5 and May 31), in which he talks about the limitations of slam poetry, explains the Perpetual Motion Roadshow and insults a much-loved Ottawa writer:
