He'll also be joined by Tony Award winners Kelli O’HaraBill Irwin and Ted Sperling, artistic director of MasterVoices, about the new production of "Babes in Toyland." Also on the show will be Anthony BourdainJeremiah Tower and Lydia Tenaglia discussing the new documentary "Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent." And he'll talk with David Bellos, author of "The Novel of the Century: The Extraordinary Adventure of Les Misérables."

I love when Leonard deals with Climate Crisis as he did with Carl Pope and the new book Pope wrote with Michael Bloomberg, recently. I was looking for the survey you wanted us to take, but can't find it, so I'm leaving this comment, though not under the show it appies to. Tackling Climate Change On The Local Level 32 was my favorite show of late. Thanks, Leonard for being the best host on Climate Crisis issues in general on WNYC. You cover this MOST important issue more than Brian Leher or Terry Gross or other talk show hosts on WNYC.
