Starting in 2001, Peter Bergman wrote a thrice-weekly radio commentary for KPCC and other public radio stations. 15 of his sardonic observations on the news, and interviews with prominent (albeit imaginary) newsmakers, have been collected on the True Confessions of the Real World CD. "I have access to a lot of important people," Bergman notes, "like GOP marketing consultant Bleach Lincoln, super agent to the stars Buddy DeMorte, and Dr. Presley Coil, with the federal Department of Approximate Rocket Science. On the show they share their expertise on everything from Star Wars to Enron to the war on terror."
