Customer Reviews

The best, I agree

Wonderful interviewer, knowledgeable and vast culture. Never boring, even on topics where you'd think you'd fall asleep. I load up a week's worth and take them with me on a long drive on the weekends.

If you must....

I spent several months listening to every edition of this podcast. I stopped. Leonard Lopate is NOT a brilliant interviewer. He is, on his best day, half the interviewer Terry Gross is. He jumps around from question to question with little to no segue. He seems so impressed with himself and any knowledge he might have on whatever subject he's covering that day that I can't believe his guests don't get more frustrated with him than they seem to. That doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to this podcast--you really don't have any other good choices for this kind of interview show on podcast. Just don't let yourself think this is as good as it gets.

Lenny is wonderful!

I, too, must disagree with Cram. It is precisely that Leonard draws from his own knowledge and doesn't stay on a set course that makes this Podcast so wonderful. The listener is privy to a real conversation, not a broadcaster reading a list of questions.
