Listener Comments:

terrific interview. immediate and timely. Having the three generations adding their opinions and perspectives is excellent. How great for The College of Wooster to have this family on campus for the first person perspective. I expect that the youngest El-Adawy to have his father and grandfather here with him during this moment in history

I am delighted that this interview took place and the participants have such a close relationship with the College of Wooster, one of the best colleges in the nation. Continue to be a bright light to the nation and the world.

Thank you Mr. Rudell for a most timely interview. I am glad to see that you made use of this tremendous resource afforded our community by the presence of a world class academic institution, the College of Wooster. We are fortunate to have so many fine colleges and universities in Ohio that provide speakers, artists, and academics to inform and educate our citizens. Once again, NPR and WKSU prove their worth by extending the reach of those resources.
