Best of Shrink Rap Radio

People are always asking me what my favorite interview is. This “Best of Shrink Rap Radio” page is my attempt to answer that question. Of course, the answer depends on the subject matter and the questioner’s area(s) of interest. I’d never be able to select just one. There have been so many favorites for me. This is a work in progress. If you think I’ve left out a really important category or interview, drop me a line and I’ll consider your suggestion. Another issue is that some of these interviews could be listed under multiple categories. However, I’ve decided to list each one only once.
