I started listening to Leonard's show when I found it in a general NPR podcast directory years ago, and have found that he and his interviewees have often surprised me by making something I didn't THINK I was interested in turn out to be fascinating. I've learned so much! (And became a sustaining member due to Leonard's and other WNYC shows I subsequently discovered after starting out on his show.)

I just wish we could turn the tables somehow and have someone interview Leonard for a show!

Dear Leonard I've left Brooklyn ( I'm not in Kansas any more) , so my studio- work shop is 100 miles away from WNYC Studios . yet with the magic of the Internet your voice is here in my space rumbling with intelligence and knowledge that delights the ears . keep on Trucking & thanks for your constant voice.

Leonard,
Your "homing" voice always takes me there.
I may be in my favorite chair, in the car, or in
my mind a thousand miles away exploring
with you and your guests every corner of the
world and imaginations of new friends.

So many thanks to you and WNYC.

I have been listening to Leonard for at least 15 of the 25 years, it took me time to discover it. I am so glad I did. I think he is the most brilliant interviewer I have ever heard. and I won't, or try not to, leave the house until his show is over. I love the guy, and he is a vital part of my day. I Don't know if I can make to the tribute, money and health. I am in poor health, and don't get out much. But. I think he should get all the accolades they can bestow. Leonard, if you read this, thank you so very much for everything. Peace and love, Connie

Happy 25th anniversary! I discovered WNYC when I tuned in to your program 10 years ago after I retired from my long term career at a hospital. I was stimulated and moved and began to realize that, hey ,there's a whole new world out here to explore! It became my daily source of cultural information and inspiration and I could never give it up! Thank you so much.
