Monday on NPR's Talk of the Nation, Jeanette Halton-Tiggs, Dave Cullen, Annette Gordon-Reed and Anthony Shadid. There were four guests and two were women and two were men. Pretty good.
But it couldn't last, could it?
Tuesday the guests were Adam Goldberg, Micheal Millin, Randall Friese, Ronen Bergman, Ed Harris, Jason Beaubien and Jose Raul Perales. That's seven guests. And how many were women? Zero. How do you not notice that you've booked seven guests and not one of them was a woman?
The answer is: You do notice. You just don't care.
