    "Charlie Rose"

    Overall

    I have tried most of the daily or weekly selections on Audible and this is by far the best. Charlie Rose is the best interviewer and has the most interesting guests of anyone in the media.

    I find this program entertaining and informative. Not every show. I probably won't download the current "Pro Wrestling" show. But I can't wait to listen to several segments on the new "Road Warrior" program. Being a cancer victim, I found the recent show on "Cancer" both informative and sensitive. The topics are wide ranging and well presented in the short segment format. I'm glad I tried it.

    Journalist James Nestor was on assignment in Greece when he saw a man dive 300 feet below the ocean’s surface on a single breath of air. When the man returned four minutes later, Nestor decided to learn all he could about freedivers - extreme athletes who rely on their lungs instead of breathing equipment. Nestor’s interest in humans with amphibious abilities turned into a book, Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, And What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves. Then, over 40 years ago, readers first met the fearless adventurer, marine engineer, and government agent Dirk Pitt in author Clive Cussler’s The Mediterranean Caper. A copywriter by day, Cussler started writing at night to keep himself company while his wife worked a nightshift. His book, Zero Hour, is now available.

    When reports began that thousands of unaccompanied children were crossing the U.S. border, the Arizona Republic dispatched nine reporters and photographers to Central America, Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley. In four short weeks, the paper produced a very impressive multi-part multimedia series titled "Pipeline of Children: A border crisis." Bob Ortega is one of the lead reporters for the series.
