Today on The Diane Rehm Show (NPR), first hour guests were Eric Toder, Tamara Keith and David Kocieniewski. The second hour guests were Alan Rabinowtiz, Caroline Alexander and Herb Raffaele.
A man e-mailed to whine that I never say anything nice about Diane Rhem.
Not true, I complimented her interview with Diane Keaton.
Second, I'm tracking the gender make up of the guests.
But I will note that unlike some radio hosts -- think Scott Horton on Antiwar Radio -- Diane doesn't cut her guests off to make points about how she was right and how she knew and blah, blah, blah.
Diane actually listens. The only one I can say that about besides Diane is the guy who does Talk of the Nation (Neal Conan?).
Most don't listen at all. Terry Gross doesn't listen. That was especially obvious in her olive oil piece today.
