Audible Editor Reviews

In this 2008 conversation with celebrated radio host and interviewer Leonard Lopate, William Shatner discusses his memoir Up Till Now. The actor who made a name for himself on Star Trek and Boston Legal clearly enjoys telling stories, and in this 92nd Street Y discussion he tells many. The anecdotes range beyond the interplanetary trials and tribulations of Captain Kirk. Shatner also covers everything from horny gorillas to Esperanto cinema. The Canadian actor and his award-winning interviewer have an easy rapport that can go from clowning around to serious subjects as they discuss the past and present of Shatner's celebrated life through the conduit of Lopate's incisive questions.

Delightful Interview - Uneven Audio

A fun and pugnacious interview with William Shatner in 2008.

Unfortunately, it was poorly mic'ed and Shatner is often difficult to hear. The interviewer is easy to hear.
