It’s the first half of a two-part series where I look back at my favorite interviews from 2019.
John Oliver famously recorded a montage on his last episode that told the world, “Fuck You 2016!”  Well, while there are many reasons for a lot of people to agree with him, this week on Book Talk we take a look at some of the reasons as to why he may be wrong. To start off the New Year right, we are listing to excerpts from the Top 6 episodes. If you haven’t heard these interviews in full, please use the Search Tool at the bottom right-hand corner of this webpage and go back and listen! Until then, join these great clips from 2016.
