By KC Ray - Dec 01 2017
Read more
I'm a regular listener to Up to Date with Steve Kraske, which lead me to start listening to C.S. I got hooked for a couple of reasons: 1) the interesting subjects on the show and 2) Gina K is a Great Interviewer! She asks the questions I would want to know, is quick with relevant follow-up questions and 3) SHE STAYS OUT OF THE GUESTS' WAY when they are responding!
