For nearly two decades now, radio host and Hoover media fellow John Batchelor has saturated the airwaves with cerebral conversations pertaining to national and international affairs. This time answering the questions rather than asking them, Batchelor discusses what drew him to the world of talk radio and how the Trump presidency has affected his show.

    Thank you for this interview with John Batchelor. I listen to him nearly every day and always, always learn something I didn’t know before I clicked on the link. He is a national treasure.

    This is an outstanding episode of an outstanding podcast series. I’ve been listening to John Batchelor since the days of Batchelor and Alexander, and consider him to be the best interviewer in any medium. The guests on his show are consistently superb, including especially one Bill Whalen. Every weeknight, for four hours, John Batchelor brings the level of insight and analysis that Peter Robinson typically delivers in the meticulously researched interviews that he conducts on Uncommon Knowledge.

    A national treasure indeed, one whose value is incalculable.

    I appeared on his show in 2017. He has a thorough understanding of space history. https://audioboom.com/posts/6542405-hotel-mars-60-years-since-flopnik-vanguard-david-livingston-spaceshow-com-richard-easton-au
