Finally, my iPod is complete
I used to live in Cincinnati, Ohio where our member station would play this every day but now that I live on the west coast I've missed it so much. Diane's guests are always uniquely qualified, intellegent individuals and Diane has a great ability to ask concise questions and wrangle yammering callers. One of the only call-in shows that I have ever felt was worth listening to. I am so happy this is finally available for podcast!
Diane's insight and willingness to ask hard questions is unmatched. Thank you to all responsible for making this show available as a podcast.
Diane Rehm's Show is the gold standard for political discussion.
I've listened to the DR Show on radio for years, but personal business has made it a hit-and-miss proposition. Now the podcasts mean I don't have to miss anything I really want to hear.
