Oasis of Information

Matt Lewis brings insightful commentary while interviewing today’s newsmakers and thinkers influencing contemporary public life. Matt is an excellent and entertaining interviewer. If you are tired of sound bites and people shouting over each other on talk radio and cable TV (where Matt also provides excellent commentary), Matt’s podcast is oasis of information and thoughtful long-form discussion.

Sane conversation in a world gone mad

Matt Lewis is essential listening if you want to go beyond the party lines. Respectful discussion from all points of view, with a great mix of content: current topics along with off-the-beaten path interviews. I’ve been introduced to so many great books and people through this podcast. Check it out!
