First of his podcasts I've listened to, and very impressed. Difficult to interview someone the stature of Pacino, but he absolutely aced it. Respectful and not fawning. Great questions and just let him go. Excellent stuff

I enjoy your show very much. I like your segment on a life well lived and would like to recommend someone, She died on Saturday, April 11th, Her name is Ruth B Mandel. She is well-known in some circles, but not nation-wide. She had a tremendous impact on many people. Her is a link to article in NY Times.k There is also information through Rutgers University as she held some key positions there. Thank you for your consideration.np://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/11/us/politics/ruth-b-mandel-a-voice-for-women-in-politics-dies-at-81.html

Willie, your show today (April 12) was great! I love how you kept the entire show positive and uplifting. In these difficult days, we need the encouragement of news personalities who are honest, forthright, and keep even those who attempt to put a negative spin on the Coronavirus and the government responses in check. Great job today! Thanks for all you are doing!
