On Point Radio Interview with Paul Binder


Unless you live under a media rock, you probably know that Paul Binder, co-founder and ringmaster of the Big Apple Circus, is stepping down this year.

He recorded a great interview on public radio about it, and about his 31 years in the circus, that included some surprises (at least for me) that he worked with Julia Child and Merv Griffin before creating the circus.

The interview also features (among others) a surprise guest call in from Steve Smith, former Ringling Clown College Dean and director of the current show.

If you’d like to listen to the show, you can!
