When she interviews an author, you can bet that she read their latest book. It's so easy to overlook Diane Rehm's voice problem because she can nail a Pubbie to the wall better than any other interviewer. He gathers great stories but, as a host, he totally sucks. Hands down, Zoe Chace! He just always seems to take things to a very over-the-top level that reminds me of some mediocre actor in local community theater. Unfortunately they rarely feature her.

I'd hate to be Zorba Paster's wife: having to listen to that voice, share dresses, etc. Sandra Tsing-Lo - oh my god, how is this intensely unclever woman allowed on air. awful. R492: thanks for the link, I did the survey and complained (politely) about the Chace voice (please give her a desk job). Ends sentences with "um" or "uh", then starts the next with "I mean". I wrote down the number of how many hosts either had speech impediments or horrible stammering problems.
