Whole Brain Radio

"It's A Question of Balance, so rare among radio talk shows, lets its subjects breathe. With her discursive style and pleasingly eccentric range of curiosity, host Ruth Copland each week treats her listeners to two hours of Whole Brain Radio."

A Confident Professional

“Being interviewed on live radio is always a little nerve-wracking, even if you’ve done it many times before. You need to feel you’re in the hands of a confident professional who’ll not only keep the talk flowing, and make the occasion fun, but also bring out the best in you with lively, informed questions and a strong idea of how to engage listeners. Ruth has those abilities in spades - I’d go on air with her any time!”

Michael Marshall Smith, internationally-bestselling thriller writer, and author of INTRUDERS, now a BBCAmerica television series starring Mira Sorvino and John Simm

Best Thing on Radio

“Perhaps the best thing I’ve ever heard on the radio - Ingrid saying that “Hitler or aliens” would be cause for a just war! I love your person-on-the-street interviews.”

Great Topics for Discussion

"Great topics for discussion. Your interviews with people on the street are compelling. I like the fact that you seek out opinions from real people rather than pundits. I also enjoy listening to a show that deals with important issues without getting directly political. The balance between the topic hour and the arts hour make for an unusual and very enjoyable show. Thanks for a wonderful Saturday night!"
