Forgive me - I don't understand the attraction
I have deep respect for Ms. Rehm's intellect and principles, but I wonder why this is a podcast and not Talk of the Nation or the stellar exchanges between Scott Simon and Dan Schorr.
Diane's insight and willingness to ask hard questions is unmatched. Thank you to all responsible for making this show available as a podcast.
No one other than......
Diane Rehm!!! She brings forth intelligent stories, truthful insights to the world of today, and the most remarkable people into my life. I adore her show, and will adore her for years and years to come. There is just simply no one like her.
