Loved all 3 of the casual chats I had with this episode's guests. Each taught me things and each were honest, thoughtful and vulnerable exchanges that I thoroughly enjoyed. John Donvan is a very respected and experiences journalist who has reported mostly for ABC news from all over the world. He has won 2 emmys, done conflict reporting and all the rest as well. He is also the best debate moderator in the country. If you haven't checked out Intelligence Squared Debates then do it now. 

Midwin Charles is a very accomplished lawyer and legal commentator who I wanted to get to know a little better in hopes of having her on the show more regularly for all of thoughtful takes on the most important issues we talk about her.

Follow her on Twitter

Bill Boyle is a listener who like many others has become a trusted friend and amazing supporter. I we talk and text quite a but and I love to get this educated and intelligent take on pretty much everything. I don't always agree with Bill but I do most of the listening when we talk. He has been a great source of thought for me over the years and I know you love when he's on. Follow him on twitter
