Program description: Work with Marty Nemko has two major components:

In the Helper part of the show, I do 3-minute WorkOvers in which I attempt to solve people's call-in work and life problems. I intersperse my favorite new career tips.

In the Big Picture part of the show, I typically have probing conversations with some of our most interesting people. Past guests include human genome decoder Craig Venter, attorney F. Lee Bailey, social critic Studs Terkel, Vanguard founder John Bogle, author of The God Delusion Richard Dawkins, critic of U.S. policies Noam Chomsky, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich, Technology Futurist Jaron Lanier, Environmental skeptic Bjorn Lomborg, Two-time Pulitzer-winning biographer David McCullough, U.S. Court of Appeals Justice Richard Posner, inventor and former Microsoft CTO Nathan Myrhvold, White House economist Jared Bernstein, Rise of the Creative Class author Richard Florida, Harvard business professor Rosabeth Moss Kanter, ABC-TV's Cokie Roberts, GE ex-CEO Jack Welch, personal finance experts Jim Cramer and Suze Orman, San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, policy wonk and Ross Perot's presidential running mate Pat Choate, futurist Ray Kurzweil, Kitchen Confidential author Anthony Bourdain, What Color is Your Parachute author Richard Bolles, CNN Executive Vice President Gail Evans, Wishcraft author Barbara Sher, author of Mastery and The 48 Laws of Power Robert Greene, liberal education critic Jonathan Kozol, conservative education critic Charles Murray, president of the American Federation of Teachers Albert Shanker, California State Schools Superintendents Bill Honig and Jack O'Connell, gender specialists Deborah Tannen and Warren Farrell, KQED's Michael Krasny, Dilbert creator Scott Adams, psychiatrist Irvin Yalom, pediatrician T Berry Brazelton, early Apple exec and current top networking expert Guy Kawasaki, liberal race experts Eva Paterson and Julianne Malveaux, conservative race experts Jared Taylor and Linda Chavez, Roots Producer David Wolper, birth control pill inventor Carl Djerassi, and sports agent Leigh Steinberg.

Every so often, I moderate a debate between world-class opponents. For example: Is it worth a major attempt to control the planet's climate? Can the U.S.compete with China? Is illegal immigration a net plus? Should the minimum wage be raised? Is Canadian-style health care a good idea for the US? Is big or small government ultimately wiser? Are racial preferences wise?

I also aperiodically do a segment, "What's it really like to be a ______?" I've interviewed everyone from psychiatrists to prostitutes.

And every month, my wife and Napa County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Barbara Nemko, comes in to give me a hard time. Many people find her the best part of the show.

The show's motto is "We find comfort among those who agree with us, growth among those who don't."
