The Steinway & Sons Podcast

Michael Idov


Michael Idov’s fortunes as a writer dramatically changed for the better following the publication in 2005 of “Bitter Brew,” an article he penned for about his failed business venture to launch a café in New York City. He was interviewed at his home in Berlin by Soundboard producer and host Ben Finane, our Editor in Chief and Editor in Chief at Steinway’s award-winning online music magazine

‘In a way it’s easier now [for writersbecause it’s all a giant meritocracy: on the one hand, it’s a horrible wall of noise; on the other hand, you can get famous off a tweet.’
