Arkansas Week serves its viewers / listeners very well.
Excellent weekly review of state politics and personalites. Steve Barnes has the long view and experience to add depth to the various topics with high quality journalism and pleasant discussion serving the state of Arkansas. The rotation of differnt journalists as guests also adds more views to the conversation and helps to keep the program from falling into a personality rut. The discourse is always polite and informed ... best comparison would be Washington Week on a national level ... or perhaps Charlie Rose with the round table, guests, and respectful conversation. Finally, I appreciate the offering of both audio and video downloads so as to serve listeners with smaller ipods, and those with larger memory capacity.
