Nice to Hear African American Perspectives
The first four shows have been very enjoyable. I am happy to hear an African American perspective on various topics, including which songs mark the holiday season for you. I think that if the show is going to be successful, it will be important to broaden some of the voices and perspectives (very DC focused so far). But I have enjoyed the show and wish it lots of success. There are so few venues to hear a perspective other than that a Western European one. For this alone...BRAVO!
Good Show, Diverse Perspectives
RoughCuts shows lots of promise. Many of the shows have interesting topics, and feature interesting guests and commentators. Michel Martin is a good host, though I sometimes get confused about her role. I think I am accostumed to hosts who reveal less of their personal lives in the course of an interview or roundtable discussion. As for the accusation that there is not enough diversity, I strongly disagree with BaltoBoy's perspective. This show does feature more African American guests than most, and there is an African American host; but Black perspectives play no greater part on this program than white perspectives do on To the Best of Our Knowledge or All Things Considered, or Morning Edition, etc., etc. This program has also featured commentary by white Americans, South Asian Americans, Asian Americans, and Latinos. Keep up the god work, NPR
Glimpse of Black Middle America
This new podcast finally gives voice to the diverse political and philosophical perspectives of African Americans. Contrary to some who have expressed the show is only of interest if you are Black, I would say the show gives everyone a unique opportunity to "eavesdrop" on what are a collection of authentic, thought provoking, analytical perspectives from Black professional writers, academics, reporters and pundits leaning left but with at least one consistently moderate or conservative perspective. It's great to hear Black folks talking about the issues of the day unapologetically from an African American perspective. I especially like the new Barber Shop segment entitled "Buzz Buzz" where African American male columnists, academics, bloggers and sport enthusiasts get together and talk the way guys would really talk to one another if they knew it had to the muster of broadcast censors. Michel Martin is a first rate, intuitive host who knows just how to keep the dialogue on track without being intrusive. I am loving this show.
