    What did you love best about What Einstein Told His Cook?

    I found this to be an extremely interesting. I learned so much about the science behind the food we eat. I've recommended this book to many people.


    What about Sean Runnette’s performance did you like?

    He definitely showed the rye sense of humor needed to make a book about food science extremely interesting.

    Over the past decade, Americans watched in bafflement and rage as one institution after another - from Wall Street to Congress, the Catholic Church to corporate America, even Major League Baseball - imploded under the weight of corruption and incompetence. In the wake of the Fail Decade, Americans have historically low levels of trust in their institutions; the social contract between ordinary citizens and elites lies in tatters. How did we get here? Christopher Hayes offers a radically novel answer.

    What did you love best about Twilight of the Elites?

    Chris Hayes was able to fill your mind full of useful facts while keeping you very entertained.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twilight of the Elites?

    While I am a lifelong sports fan I learned several details that I had not known before.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Hayes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Most definitely.
