Interesting, intelligent, different
This is a great radio show. Grant Reeher interviews a variety of guests--political, civic, scientific--about their lives, work, and views on current but enduring topics of interest. The interviewer is very skillful and the guests are given time to develop their stories and share deeper insights than you often get, even on public radio. I think it should be a national show, but am really glad we have it here in central new york. Check out the interviews from London (e.g. cultural critic, Christopher Cook, and the one from the former British labor party leader) for an comparative perspective. Really good radio for people interested in politics and public life, generally!
