I think Ms. Thompson does a good job in presenting her perspective on American Monuments. I was a little surprised on how not many people’s hands actually determine the process in creating them and making them ‘valid’ for public opinion. Being a dyed-in-the-wool history buff, I feel that today’s generation has no right to just openly destroy or knock them off pedestals just because of PC, Social Justice indoctrination, or because they feel offended. I cannot believe that a mob leader actually only had to serve 100 hours community service only to get to explicate “how bad it (statue) is?” Hateful ideologies and slavery existed in the 19th centuries and those statues are reminders how much we have progressed. Unfortunately, they are being removed under the guise of equality and social justice but it is clear that countervailing antiAmerican ideological forces are also at play which bodes we have done nothing but regress. She mentioned three Civil Rights women statues (for the first time ever) were eventually put up in a State park and that apparently was not enough to placate the offended. The claim was they seemed to passive and all looked well too well in the way they were postured? This book I ultimately feel is more to energize woke party lines toward statues then actually see the egregious damage of erasing our history. Special shout out to Susan Swaine who is nothing short of fabulous as a host.
The show has really gone downhill since Mr. Lamb left. It used to feature authors speaking about little known yet fascinating historical topics and was also politically neutral. Now it seems like guests are chosen based the new hosts political views.
Everyone says they miss Brian Lamb, but I think Susan Swain has clearly done a great job in filling his shoes. Q&A is one of a very few media outlets that get my attention, and, in this case, loyalty.
The direct and well-prepared questions are clear and lead to good answers.
As a longtime albeit I imagine still much younger CSPAN fan, I’ve been disappointed with the direction this show has taken over the last year. I know Brian Lamb is irreplaceable, but the host change, guest selection, and other format elements seem almost intentionally disruptive to the previous magic of this show, that was so wonderfully simple and in no need of refresh.The beauty of this show, prior to the changes, was that you were introduced to topics, ideas and people objectively and without pretense. The show now seems interested or motivated to be relevant in the devastating political punditry cable TV hellhole. Please stop.
Q&A under its new leader, Susan Swain, has freshness, relevance and diversity while following the fantastic format of guest center stage and interviewer in the background. Direct and humble in her approach, Ms Swain’s style is much like Mr Lamb’s. We never hear her talking just to hear herself speak. She brings context and knowledge to the back and forth discussions as well as balance. Women! There are women intellectuals, academics and authors guests galore. Hallelujah! Thank you Susan Swain .
When I found this pod cast I was in LA morning traffic. I was disappointed when the traffic started to move. No one is better than Brian Lamb.

Don’t know if I would be sane without CSPAN and Brian Lamb and this amazing podcast.
Great interviews of history and the present.
Attn: Honorable Gentleman Mr. Brian Lamb, On Sunday, June 24th 2018, my local cable station provided an Interview you provided with Professor Amy Wax. She had a some excellent remarks regarding public opinions in her university’s Pennsylvania press. She voiced her concerns about the knowledge ( roughly twenty years) she can produce from her course portfolios, showing gaps of academic readiness in law classes based on the First Amendment. She expressed at least 30 some students out of a class size of less than 100, felt she was racist, conservative and too far to the right, when it comes to her area of expertise. Since I was only a spectator of the prod cast I was keenly interested in thé aired production. Her public persona seems quite respectable and should be recognized as honorable. Our nation has grown quickly thanks to media, hopefully there will be a woman President, a black male on the Supreme Court, and a fighting chance for lawyers and judges to move up in the ranks of tenure. Thanks to c-span channels, I and many other listeners, continue my education in and out of public and private universities settings. Sincerely, Antoinette Mc Donnell Facione
Brian Lamb is a great interviewer—he lets folks speak and shifts focus abruptly so that they never get too comfortable. These are very well done.
I would highly recommend subscribing to this podcast. Brian Lamb is a phenomenal interviewer and always asks the pertinent questions that lead to more understanding.
Best interview show period.
This podcast saved my marriage. My wife and I listen to this podcast every night together before we sleep. My son listens to it in the Florida prison he currently resides in, it makes us feel connected to him. Thank you C-SPAN.
he is one of the best out there very informed about his guests he will ask questions triggered from what the guests is saying, unlike many others that seem more script based brian is an easy going sort and makes this podcast great thanks brian and crew
Fiercely impartial, patient, steady. This is what our million-dollar talking head darlings are incapable of. Lamb is an American original.
Please resume adding Descriptions to your podcast feed!
Brian Lamb is a national treasure. No one comes even close to this man when it comes to down to earth interviews. A one in a generation kind of person.
This is one of my favorite podcasts. Brian Lamb gets a great amount of depth with interesting guests and what can be quite complex topics. I really enjoy how he mixes his questions about the interviewee and their works.
I look forward to this podcast all week. Brian Lamb is an amazing host!
This is why I bought an iTouch. I download these podcasts and plug it into my car radio. They are all wonderful!
What an awkward interview of Justice Scalia. Reminds me a little of Chris Farley interviewing Paul McCartney. The saving grace of the interview is Scalia's sense of absurdity.

5/5

Brian Lamb is an American hero, actually a Presential Medal of Honor recepient. I don't always agree with the opinions of the guests, but I always agree with Lamb's objectivity and ability to get to the root of the person. Listen - you be much richer for the experience. One hour is just perfect for an early evening walk.
C-Span does a great service to us as citizens. I've always found Q&A to be so very insightful and enlightening. This is a terrific podcast!
