This ground-breaking show uses the medium of radio beautifully to illuminate the human stories behind the news. Jonathan Groubert is one of the most skillful and humane interviewers anywhere; he and the TSWI team provide insight and clarity almost never found in a world filled with quick cutaways and superficial soundbites. Here in the U.S. we are hearing a lot about supporting “job creators.” Those who make the decisions in the media need to do everything they can to support the “content creators.” Journalism is in desperate need of in-depth content. There are now many, many technological avenues to obtain information, but very little quality content to fill these channels. It takes years for a team to get to the level the TSWI team has reached in terms of skill, proficiency, and quality. Once a resource like TSWI is gone, it leaves a void that cannot easily be filled. This amazing program provides terrific value—please do not allow it to be silenced!
