leonard or someone at wnyc ,
Some years ago, there was a male host, I believe a regular (i.e. you leonard or brian) ,who did exaclty what is going on today, interviewing a book's author,
I so want to read this book.
- the author was male,
- the subject of the book was an examination of john, the author of revelations
- the book was very historically centered , seeming to center on how john felt.

I recently saw the station is hiring a show assistant, someone who was able to contribute to production

Are you still seeking?
I will look at your site, but seem to remember, applicants were to answer a few questions:
-perhaps suggest a theme for a show

and... NAME his or her favorite show? Thing is you know what mine is?
Or did I dream it.

any suggestions as to a means of finding reference to the show ( or the book ) in question? I have gone through , I confess: not in an orderly manner, the show archives of wnyc's male daytime hosts.

Nowhere for me to leave message on the BBC series so forgive me tacking this on to the end of this piece but there is no image of the Easter Island Statue on your page...? PLEASE can we see it?

A childhood history of abuse (not necessarily physical abuse) is much more common in adults who have PTSD than among those who don't develop it in response to similar events.
