When you're doing the TV thingie:

PREPARE! (It's only supposed to LOOK spontaneous!)
Write an outline of what you want to say.
Email it to me and I'll tell you what's missing, and if you need more
info on something I'll get it right to you.
Polish it up.
Make the outline into QUESTIONS AND ANSERS!
Put the most important stuff at the top.
SEND THEM A COPY!
TELL THEM THESE ARE THE CRUCIAL QUESTIONS TO ASK!
Most newspeople are thrilled when you send them something like this
because it totally saves their overworked butts.
Then .... sit in a room alone and do this interview with your dog
about 50 times. Have some treats in your blouse pocket and practice
making vigorous eye contact with the dog all the time you speak! (The
treats will keep the dog paying attention to you!) Get totally
comfortable with the material.
When you get to the TV station .... pretend they're your dog!
