Missing Joshua Johnson

Mr Johnson brought balance and varied perspectives that I greatly appreciated to 1A. For the most part, he let his guests express their point of view without injecting his own opinion into the conversation. By doing so, i valued his own perspectives with greater weight when he did “weigh in”. As a straight white woman, I sometimes needed to hear what his personal experiences were, and appreciated his candor. Mr Zwillich, by contrast, injects his opinions into almost every episode, and while I may frequently agree with him were I to share a cup of coffee one day, I find the frequency detracts from the reporting I had grown to love in 1A.
