Outstanding Podcast !!! Excellent interviews, terrific choices
Terrific listening to these, beg for more...The interviewer/producer is truly gifted, he has great questions for the biographer, probing questions that bring out the best. He emphasizes the biography writer as well as his or her subject. And the topics !! What a great change of pace, "little known/want to know more" biography. Paul Newman, Gypsy Rose Lee, J. K. Rowling, great subjects, I will buy the books.....Heartfelt thianks and ----More Please !!!! Alice Roosevelt Longworth, Jim Henson, Duke Ellington, perhaps?
Great show! Well formatted. The host asks good questions in his interviews and gives a great view of the book being reviewed. Love the show!
Please Dont Quit!!
I love this podcast. I like to hear about the books straight from the person who wrote it. Chris ask wonderful questions. I may not listen to the podcast on schedule but that is only because I save each episode like gold, then at a special time I listen to it so that I can give it my full attention. Chris please don't give up the ship...we love your podcast!!
