I just listened to it, and… this was a perfect example of why I hate, hate, hate call-in shows. Out of all the listener calls, only Nancy was on-topic. I listen to an awful lot of NPR, including my local station's show "Airtalk" and the recently-departed, sorely-missed "Talk of the Nation". The hosts are excellent interviewers; they generally do their homework and are reasonably well-informed on the topic at hand... and then they take a listener call and I start shouting at my radio. Why? Why? What could Joe Schmo possibly contribute to this discussion? Doesn't anybody screen these calls?Anyway, I realize that those people probably call in and humble-brag about their Mayflower ancestors for the same reason I'm typing this now: we all crave an audience. So I really mustn't grumble. But oh, it's hard.
