The Ruler’s Back!
Massive DR fan. NPR was at the top of the game back when they had The Diane Rehm Show, Talk of The Nation, “And I’m Robert Siegel.” So grateful that I get to listen again!
My go to podcast
Absolutely love this show. I find it to be a close look into what’s happening, with facts. Interviews with people you normally wouldn’t hear on main street media but are closely involved and knowledgeable in different areas of expertise. Also Diane is an absolute pleasure to listen to.
We always appreciate the thoughtful conversations Diane has each week. So happy to have this show after missing the regular NPR daily show.
