23: David Weinberg

David Weinberg, a former Marketplace producer, is part of KCRW's Independent Producer Project and the creator of Random Tape.

"I felt so trapped before I found and decided that radio is what I wanted to do. I placed a lot on this as being the thing that was going to save me. And so there was this huge amount of fear that like if I don't do it well then I have nothing. ... And so recording my life all the time was a way to be like, 'Oh, I'm not a bum bumming around with no plan. I have a plan. I'm working on it.' And the longer you do that, the longer you put off actually making something for the first time, the harder it gets. And I was just stuck in that period for many years. ... When I look back at it now, I'm like, 'You idiot. Why were you wasting all this time when you could've been getting better at making stories?' But I was so afraid to do things out in the open."
