    i love listening to your program every Sunday morning and appreciate the work done by all of you. I particularly like the wide array of subjects every week, and the weekly thread within. Thank you.

    As i listen I pull up your web to kind of “watch along”. It would be helpful for each segment if there was a picture of the interviewee and perhaps a link to their “faculty bio” page. It’s much more “pulling in” to actually see a face and associate to the words being listened to.

    Again, thank you for your good works.
