The Ink Spot

The Ink Spot with Dr. Stanley G. is a book review program where book critics square off against each other and match wits against authors. In each episode, the moderator, plus two panelists from varied backgrounds, read a book and come together to debate the issues explored in the book. The first segment of the show consists of Dr. Stanley G. conducting an interview with the author. The second segment consists of the panelists giving their overall opinions of the book. But as opposing viewpoints emerge, the conversation usually turns to more verbal sparring, good-natured gamesmanship and occasionally loud cross-talk as the debate heats up. Every episode ends with Dr. Stanley G. asking for a thumbs up or thumbs down as to whether each panelist would recommend the book to other readers.
