  1. Gawd, Linda WIner is a mess. A good writer and critic, but just a disaster as an interviewer. Amateurish, nervous and ill-prepared, constantly making errors. I appreciate this series, but I wish they had found someone else to represent it.

  2. Great woman…worked with her in the '90s. Such inspiration and she would make you do things you never thought you could do.
