Customer Reviews

Crossfire it is not

One of the last bastions of true discussion & debate in ALL of media, not just radio. Brian Lehrer confesses to his liberal leanings, but goes out of his way to be an impartial arbiter. Its not faux debate, or infotainment that mainstream news media has become. More power to Brian and WNYC!

Highly Recommended Show

It's always worthwhile listening to a show where you don't know which way the host is leaning on various political/social issues. Some of the guests are very interesting and have proven credentials as experts on their respective professions. Perfect way to stay in tune with today's current events!

Brian's a Gem, But 'Cast is Too Short

We have loved Brian in NYC for years and years, he is smart and works very hard to bring in different points of view without people shouting at each other, a rarity indeed.---However, the show itself is two hours long; WNYC displays an odd hesitation in not putting the whole thing out there. Thus the four stars, instead of five. The station's toe-in-the-water approach seems to be loosening up, but v e r y s l o w l y. I'm a member since 1992 or something, so I feel somewhat qualified to criticize their hesitant approach to podcasting. C'mon, put it all up! What are they afraid of?
