Great show, but poorly edited as podcast

I was very excited to have access to Fresh Air as a podcast since I'm usually working when the show airs. The interviews are great, but the editing has been disappointing. Segment changes are choppy and episodes often end mid-sentence. The Ken Burns segment of March 15 was a particular disappointment, ending less than 10 minutes into the episode. I love the show! I just hope the editing improves.

Fresh Air

Teri Gross is probably the best interviewer I have ever listened heard.
She has always read the book, heard the music, seen the art.She is never unprepared, unlike many interviewers I have heardAnd it is never about her—she always remembers what she is there for. I have listened over the years as she has worked to make her voice more pleasing and learned how to ask questions that in other hands would seem intrusive, but she makes her interviewees want to answer. And they are things that I want to know.
And lastly, she understands that is important to ask follow up questions and not just stick to the list that she started with. She listens.
I am worried she may retire, and we will be stuck with the likes of Alec Baldwin.
Teri long may you wave!

Climate change

Hello, my name is Lily Rudman and I am a fifth grader at Oyster River Middle School in New Hampshire and for the past month me and my peers have been focusing on Climate Change for one big event ( a presentation) with over a hundred people coming. And I was very nervous about presenting because I was hiding from my self that I was not prepared. But after hearing this podcast episode on climate change and how well you speak with millions of people listening and working with other people it has given me the courage and confidence to get a A plus in my science class.
