Brilliant conversations

Always captivating! I have been listening to The Conversation for a while and with each guest, the varying experience in the same field is fascinating and intriguing.

intelligent conversation with interesting women

uh, that's about it.


I am listening to surrogacy. It's an interesting conversation, however I am struck by what appears to be biased behavior. The African woman always speaks second, is not given as many questions, and the interviewer does not appear to be as interested in her responses. The American woman, always speaks first, is given far more questions, more time to answer, and her responses are deferred to. The interviewer is far more likely to follow up asking the American about her feelings. I am interested in the African woman's feelings as well, and the African woman's story. The interviewer should think more about the appearance of bias on how she conducts and edits the interview. Equal time and attention should be the rule in this kind of presentation.
