very insightful show

Bob, you have some wonderful guests on the show and I really appreciate all of your insight and the kind of talks you have on this show. i just think that sometimes you don’t give the guests breathing room and space to speak by cutting people off. i think you have the power and intelligence to keep the conversation on a certain course, but need to learn to be comfortable when a guest is saying something thats not contributing to your point and find ways to bring it back to your conversational topic, rather than cutting people off to rephrase the question.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Thank you Robert Scheer for your prescient idea to interview the great Human Being and Poet Laureate of San Francisco Lawrence Ferlinghetti. This podcast is a treasure! The history you share is deep and wide. The influence Lawrence has had on my own life is invaluable. Merci Beaucoup!

Reflection

Professor Scheer, I will not be listening anymore because you will not stop talking. I did not tune in to hear you ramble on incessantly, but to hear the offerings of your guests. Waiting for you to desist speaking so that your guests can finally speak is no longer an option open to me. Be apprised that this is an audio medium, and your voice and delivery are not optimum. Thank you for Edith Piaf, at least. Non, Je ne regrette rien is always reassuring and life-giving.
