American and European diplomats are meeting in Geneva today in hopes of building a framework for future talks on tempering Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But yesterday, Iran's Atomic Energy Organization announced that it had produced yellowcake uranium from domestically-mined ore — a breakthrough that eliminates Iran's reliance on imports for their nuclear goals.

Joining us to discuss the future nuclear landscape and Iran’s position in the world is Stephen Kinzer, author of "Reset: Iran, Turkey and America’s Future."

I really dislike the pace, tone, noise which seems to be the substance of your program as opposed to what actually gets said. I wish you hadn't come on air. As of now, it signals to me that it is time to turn the radio off.

For you: form > content
and your form is quite annoying, probably at any time of the day, but more so in the morning.
Just go away!!!
