Larry King was “the best listener” says Shaka Ssali “he knew how to open the microphone for the guests in a manner that was sophisticated” and strived to give a platform to the people he was interviewing.  Shaka says that for him an interview is a vehicle for the newsmaker to interact with his audience in a manner that is “journalistically filtered.” Paul Ndiho, who hosts the show,  and Shaka also talk about the U.S. inauguration and discuss lessons learned.  Shaka says building strong institutions is what is very important in making  a country resilient to political upheaval.
