These are some of my favorite radio interviews that I've done over the years, especially the ones on New York City's WBAI with John Harris, in which I was the keynote guest of their annual fund-raising drive. John Harris' enthusiasm for the work comes through strong and is especially moving given his unexpected and tragic death only a year later of a brain aneurysm.
