For Your Eyes Only with David Alpern

Since 1982, Alpern’s show has broadcast more than 5,000 interviews with public officials, corporate leaders, scientists, medical experts, authors and celebrities across a broad ideological spectrum. Among them: Nancy Reagan, Hillary Clinton, Katharine Hepburn, Katharine Graham, Bill Gates, former CIA Directors William Colby and Stansfield Turner, LBJ biographer Robert Caro, historian Annette Gordon-Reed, novelist E.L. Doctorow, actress Anna Deavere Smith. Recent guests continue that broad reach: from the Hoover Institution’s Iran expert Abbas Milani and Larry Diamond, a Bush Administration adviser in Baghdad, to former Pentagon official Lawrence Korb at the Center for American Progress; from the Rev. Jim Wallis, best-selling evangelical author, to journalist/screenwriter Mark Boal, who won two Oscars for “The Hurt Locker” based on his first-hand experience in Iraq. Here is David Alpern’s interview of Michael Foster, author of A Dangerous Woman: The Life, Loves and Scandals of Adah Isaacs Menken
