    Hooray for whoever put this out in Book/Audio form! I had heard some of the individual entries, but it is truly exciting to see these short essays put together in one piece. There are wonderful glimpses of the individuals featured here. It's inspiring and encouraging to hear these short philosophies of famous and not-so-famous people.
    This is something different and fascinating. Easy listening in the best possible way!

    "Fantastic week after week"

    Overall

    I have listened to many programs on the radio, and subscribed to a few on Audible. To the Best of My Knowledge is, show after show, undeniably one of the best, most charming, most interesting, and most engaging shows, radio or otherwise out there. Do yourself a favor and buy one or two if you are skeptical. I have yet to hear a bad episode

  • "As Good as it Gets"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    Charlie Rose is the most engaging interviewer with the most interesting guests on American television. Full stop. Little of his deft style and the dynamic of interchanges with his guests is lost in the audio-only format. Simply, he is too articulate to leave to gestures what could be accomplished with words. Moreover, his non-confrontational approach naturally lends itself to audio.

    The range of guests appearing on his show is impressive: executives, artists, academics, diplomats, the list goes on. All of these guests not only are at the top of their fields, but each has something very, very interesting to say. And, of course, Charlie Rose brings it out in spades!

    His approach is much more analytical than typical broadcast interviewers. He fully rejects the sound-bite, for-or-against bias to which we have become accustomed in the press. For my money, he is the model to which broadcast interview journalism should strive.

    Now that Audible has sorted out the broadcast delay issue (now offering day-after-the-broadcast service), there is no reason not to try this show!

Then, we take a moment to remember influential African-American poet and author Amiri Baraka who died earlier this year. Finally, Bob talks to Betty Medsger about her new book, The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI. It’s about the historic l971 break-in to the FBI’s office in Media, Pennsylvania. The burglars stole all of the files in the office, which revealed that the FBI was engaged in secret and illegal spying and dirty tricks operations against anti-war activists, civil rights groups, and other American dissidents. Despite a massive manhunt, the FBI never found the culprits. In her book, Medsger reveals the identity of some of the burglars for the first time. Bob also talks to two of the burglars, John and Bonnie Raines. In l971, John Raines was a professor of religion at Temple University; Bonnie Raines, his wife, was raising their three small children. Betty Medsger was a Washington Post reporter who received some of the purloined documents, and broke the story.
