Since the departure of Leonard Lopate, this show is a rudderless ship with no real personality and no direction with a hodgepodge of guest hosts. WNYC has had long enough to find a permanent host. Below is my original review which was wonderful:
I am smarter, more informed, moved, and dare I say enlightened at times by listening to The Leonard Lopate Show. Every week I am amazed and thrilled by the variety of guests.
I’ve listen to this show for years while drawing in my studio each and every day. I’ve been exposed to books, plays, films, artists, comedians, graphic novels, world affairs, and the plights of other people at home and abroad. I can’t a single show, in all of media, that is so informative on such a wide variety of subjects. Bravo!
