“Whether you agree or disagree…”
...It must be by far the most fascinating site I’ve stumbled upon in ages. It’s entertaining (a perfect way to spend office hours, when no one is looking), but there is much more to it. This program must have been the forerunner of “60 Minutes” and Mike Wallace gives us an example of some very fine journalism.
One can read the transcripts of interviews, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Take your time, listen and enjoy. There are Elsa Maxwell, Salvadore Dali, Aldous Huxley for you.
PS. The first interview I watched was the one with Gloria Swanson. Of all things, I was surprised by how extremely fragile she appears. But still big - and for a change in a picture to match her worth.
