You may notice that this list is long. There are a couple of reasons for that: 1. It was a busy week in Janesville. 2. As strange as it may sound, I do not expect you to listen to the whole show. I would love it if you would, but people are busy. I’d love to read every “Atlantic Monthly” from cover to cover but let’s be realistic. So, here is the first thing I would hope you will do: Look at the show as a weekly news magazine, available to you at no cost. Each show is full of information and this week, you can even hear Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl speaking in Janesville.
Next, look at the list of interviews, pick the ones you really want to hear, first, and then come back for more later.
Thanks for reading and listening. Please tell your friends.
