Perhaps the most enigmatic member of the RadioNemo family is our studio producer, Sidney. If you've listened to The Dave Nemo Show on Friday, or Dave Nemo Weekends on Saturday and Sunday, you've heard her. And if you've called, you've talked to her.
But do you know her? Do any of us really know anyone?
Here's what you might already know about her:
1. She has twin toddlers.
2. She hates summer.
3. She likes JarJar Binks.
4. She was raised with alpacas.
5. She's named after Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols, but in all reality, she's really not so vicious.
We decided it was time to unravel a bit of the mystery that is Sidney in this exclusive RadioNemo.com interview, featuring the only known photo of Sidney in her natural habitat (spaaaaace).
What's your favorite dinosaur?
I have to pick just one?
Brontosaurus or pterodactyl. Or maybe brachiosaurus. I love dinosaurs!
If you were a planet, what planet would you be?
I would be Jupiter! It's had a storm brewing for over 350 years. That sounds about right for me!
How many hair colors have you had?
I think I've had all of them! I've been dyeing my own hair since I was 10, and I've probably had every color combo in the rainbow. My favorite hair colors are blue and black.
Who would you love to interview?
There are so many incredibly inspiring people I'd love to interview if I could, but for now let's go with two.
The first would be musician, author, singer, songwriter, and boundary-breaking performance artist Amanda Palmer. Amanda is is currently a solo artist, and used to be one half of the alternative rock/dark cabaret themed musical duo, The Dresden Dolls.
The second would be would be literary critic, essayist, inventor, teacher, and author Margaret Atwood. Margaret is the author of The Handmaid's Tale, a dystopian novel released in 1985 that is now a show on Hulu.
What are you reading? Any suggestions for the Sleeper Cab Library?
One of my favorite books that I reread recently is Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson. It's a psychological thriller about a woman with the inability to keep memories for more than 24 hours and no memory of what happened that made her that way. It is filled to the brim with suspense, curiosity, and plot twists. It's also available as an audio book to check out on the road!
See any good movies lately?
I watched the remake of Disney's Aladdin when it came out in theaters and it was surprisingly good! The choreographed dancing and singing was beautiful! I highly recommend checking it out if you're a fan of the original movie.
If you had to pick a trucker handle, what might it be?
It would need to be something a little bizarre and funny, maybe Electric Sheep or Sleepy Supernova.
Well, there you have it. We've removed a touch of the mystery, but perhaps created more in its place.
As Sid (the Not-So-Vicious) would say, I'm here for that.
