I'm greatly enjoying the Charles Paris BBC dramas - the music alone is a blast from the past; the actors are pitch-perfect; and the stories a lot of fun. I know Charles would not be much fun to know or live with, in reality, but he is such a wonderful scoundrel to hear from as he continues to live in a state of scotch-fueled non-divorce with his long-suffering wife Frances. The scene where he's a stand-in in his daughter's prenatal class is particularly memorable; as is the anniversary scene in "A Reconstructed Corpse." If you like radio drama with a sense of humor, these are for you.
I am a huge fan of both Noam Chomsky and Brian Lamb, so I am a bit biased. On the other hand, I truly think this interview was done well. Chomsky spoke in about as clear a voice as he's going to get nowadays. Lamb is, as always, a masterful and sincere interviewer. Callers on the program ask a lot of questions I think we could imagine ourselves asking, even a couple of frivolous ones. The sound quality is also very good. Chomsky talks about many things that are crucial to our understanding of world affairs, particularly the American role in it. This interview covers a lot of ground, though one should really read his books to appreciate the extent of the knowledge and research behind what he says. People who are probably disinclined to be fans of Chomsky, but really know little about him aside from very questionable characterizations of him by right-wing pundits may also want to give this interview a listen.
