Well good for Diane
In a first since I've been monitoring, The Diane Rehm Show today had more female guests than it did male ones. The first hour was: Sarah Brown, Marjorie Dannenfelser, Laura Meckler and Ann Richards daughter Cecile Richards. The second hour: was Diane Ackerman.
That's five guests and all were women. Good going for Diane and her crew. They might end the month of April with an equal number of men and women on the show. If they don't, she'll still do much better than Terry Gross' 2010 record of only 18% of the guests being women.
