Great interview and format off the five questions

But, for the love of god, lose the music.

Terrible interviewer

She does not have a voice for radio, not to mention her grating and intrusive presence in these episodes. Also you just know she was fired from the New York Times for her subpar journalism 😒 This woman has - no exaggeration- ruined other women’s lives and careers.

YarnGuy ,

Fangirling

The Tarantino interview: entertaining, sure, because that guy could read the phone book and be entertaining. But Lynn, really—pronouncing Chaim Potok as “Shy-Em”?
