Leonard Lopate is the best interviewer I've ever heard, and given the breadth and depth of topics he and his guests cover, I know I'm churlish to complain... but I'm going to anyway:

Could we possibly have just a smidgen fewer interviews regarding food? Restaurants, cooking, foody-ism, again and again. How about throwing a bone to those of who don't live to eat, and trim the fat a little? Either give more time to other interviews, or explore other topics. Just one or two fewer food interviews per month, that's all I'm asking.

I love this discussion about Melissa's early experiences with cooking. When she mentioned preparing rabbit, I suddenly remembered my son's comment when, at about age 5, he learned about this possibility: "What? Do you mean people eat bunnies? People should NOT eat bunnies!"
