What an unbelievable stupid interview! Hockenberry could hardly wait to get Nobel Prize winner Joseph Steiglitz off the line. Hockenberry should stick to computer game noises. Please isn't making WNYC AM unlistenable in the morning enough? WNYC should not try for the greatest common denominator to expand its listeners. Leave that to conservative talk radio.
