I listened and you made a difference to me. I played an episode of Radiolab to my mother, she lisyened and you made a difference to her. The same can be said for many people I know and more that I don't. I will miss you, Robert (Bobby,) because of your infectious sense of wonder & amusement. Thank you. PS- Jad: I'll be listening after you wrest the reins from Robert's hands.

Choking up at not being able to count on Robert's voice bubbling up pearls of reflection. As part of this team with a tinge of Abbot and Costello, Robert has delighted my week with new topics to ponder and hope that with people like this in radio, maybe the world isn't so frightening. Thank you sir.
