ALL OF IT is a show about culture and its consumers. ALL OF IT is a show about culture and context. ALL OF IT is a show about culture and the culture. Our aim is to engage the thinkers, doers, makers, and creators, about the what and why of their work. People make the culture and we hope, need, and want the WNYC community to be a part of our show. As we build a community around ALL OF IT, we know that every guest and listener has an opinion. We won’t always agree, but our varied perspectives and diversity of experience is what makes New York City great. ALL OF IT will be both companion for and curator of the myriad culture this city has to offer. In the words of Cristina De Rossi, anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College, London: "Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things." ...In other words, ALL OF IT. --- Join us for ALL OF IT with Alison Stewart, weekdays from 12:00 - 2:00PM on WNYC.

If you must....
I spent several months listening to every edition of this podcast. I stopped. Leonard Lopate is NOT a brilliant interviewer. He is, on his best day, half the interviewer Terry Gross is. He jumps around from question to question with little to no segue. He seems so impressed with himself and any knowledge he might have on whatever subject he's covering that day that I can't believe his guests don't get more frustrated with him than they seem to. That doesn't mean you shouldn't listen to this podcast--you really don't have any other good choices for this kind of interview show on podcast. Just don't let yourself think this is as good as it gets.
The best, I agree
Wonderful interviewer, knowledgeable and vast culture. Never boring, even on topics where you'd think you'd fall asleep. I load up a week's worth and take them with me on a long drive on the weekends.
Leonard Lopate Has the Ability to Make Every Topic Interesting
I started listening to the Leonard Lopate show on XM and I listen to it when ever I can. This podcast helps me out for the shows I miss. Leonard Lopate is such a good interviewer I find myself drawn into the conversation, regardless of the topic. Even topics I thought would not interest me, I find intriguing. This is a must-catch Podcast.
