I remember seeing portions of two Donahue shows on television in the 1980s and thinking "This guy is a shallow pretty boy entertaining feminist radicals and housewives, pandering to the crowd." Having never again watched Donahue I've held that opinion of Donahue since the 1980s....until I heard this interview. Only now do I begin to understand the revolution that was taking place in race and sex in the 70's and 80's and 90's, and needed to take place, and that Donahue was sensitive to and trying to understand, explain, perhaps mediate. Your interview with Donahue was fascinating and enlightening. I remember another interview aired on On Being months ago where Abraham Heschel was discussed. You have a great program and excellent guests.
