Steve Post was the brilliant, sardonic WBAI (and later WNYC) radio host whose voice was a familiar tonic during Watergate, the Vietnam War, the Nixon era, and beyond. Like Truman Capote and Norman Mailer, creators of the nonfiction novel, Steve Post personalized the political and politicized the personal – pioneering freeform radio by improvising self-deprecating stories drawn from his childhood or from page one of the New York Times. Some of his favorite guests included Abbie Hoffman, Paul Krassner (publisher of The Realist), Marshall Efron, Marilyn Sokol, and John Lithgow. Filmmaker Rosemarie Reed recreates a time when this curmudgeonly Jewish comic genius turned radio into a medium that was of the moment: both endlessly entertaining and profoundly enlightening. Plus he was very, very funny.
