Customer Reviews

nobody does an interview like eleanor does an interview

I've been listening to Eleanor Wachtel interview writers for over 20 years since - i was a wee university student. Because of her, I have more books than i will have time in my life to read. And i'm mostly okay with that. She is incredibly engaged, thorough, and warm. She connects immediately with her subjects and draws them out into the most fascinating conversations that are not "just about writing". And i love catching that "a-ha" moment when the interviewee clues in that Wachtel really knows her stuff and that is not going to be a junket book tour interview, but an intelligent, interesting and friendly exchange about lots of stuff. (Just listen to the end when the writer's actually seem down that the interview is over.) She is the James Lipton of books (w/o the pretense and whiney self-adoration). Thank god they made this into a podcast. I can finally got out on Sunday afternoons... Now, will they PLEASE upload the past shows? ALL of them! Eleanor is da bomb!

Just wonderful!

This is my favorite podcast. I listen to it during my walks: the time flies by and I find myself grinning most of the time. The interviews are both amusing and insightful - fascinating people and subjects.

The Best Arts Interviewer in the business

You simply can't beat EW - always superbly prepared, asking great questions, and never being self referential or flashy. She does not disappoint either listener or the person being interviewed. Can't get enough.
