A Podcast too important not to listen to.
Jay Nordlinger is a great interviewer he asks interesting and penetrating questions and gives the interviewee time to answer. No matter the subject music, golf, politics or history you learn something great from every interview. But even more important is the number of human rights activists around the world that Jay interviews. People that should be, in a sane and just world, household names but who you probably never have heard about. Jay gives time to some of the bravest people of the unfree world from Cuba, Russia, China, Venezula. Where ever tyranny pushes down and crushes the people Nordlinger finds the people that refuse to be crushed and lets them tell their story. If we had a school system actually interested in giving people a real education Q&A would be in every class room in America. You owe it to yourself to check this podcast out.
Jay Nordlinger is an insightful interview. Well worth the listen.
Nordlinger is an American Treasure
Eventhough he went to Michigan and I to Ohio State, I never miss one of these. Great guests. Great questions on a wide breadth of topics.
