Ironic Title

Ahhh ‘The Sunday Edition,’ which conveniently comes out on Friday, Saturday or Thursday. Who knows.

A poor replacement for Sunday Edition with Enright. I will stop listening after 20 years

Brilliant interviewer, great voice

Piya Chattopadhyay is a wonderful Sunday morning listen.
Previously, she had developed a style where she heavily emphasized occasional words. Thankfully she has reverted to her original, mellifluous style.
