I quite disagree with Dandru! Leonard is an excellent interviewer: prepared, polite, and always knowledgeable. Despite a wide variety of guests, he brings out the best in each one. Keep on truckin' Leonard!

This was a good interview (despite the author saying the word "literally" too frequently). However, as is often the case, Leonard Lopate spends WAY too much time interrupting his guests. People who tun into this show do so in order to hear what the guests have to say. Leonard is a facilitator, nothing more--what he has to say is, with respect to Leonard, much less important than what they do. But every time a guest starts speaking, he cuts that person off instead of staying quiet and letting that guest finish what he or she was going to say. I have listened to the show for years because of the diversity of interesting topics--but gheez, Leonard, zip it when your guests are talking! You're not the reason people tune in.
