Comments from the Judges:

“This is terrific reporting, comprehensive, often counter-intuitive, and presented by a host who is knowledgeable and personable. His conversational tone makes him trustworthy…or makes me inclined to trust him. It’s a good use of radio with a wide range of voices, including a number of experts who speak a language we can understand.”
