Radio superstar Ophira Eisenberg told hosts Gersh Kuntzman and Vince DiMiceli that they’ve got what it takes to also become radio superstars during her 20 minutes of scintillating commentation (if that is a word) on Brooklyn Paper Radio Thursday afternoon.

Asked for her expert opinion on how the show was going, Eisneberg affirmed that the higher-ups at the Community News Group made the right decision when they put Gersh and Vince behind the microphone thanks to the boys on-air rapport.

“I’m pretty sure you already have it,” the host of NPR’s “Ask Me Another” said. “That’s what makes good radio.”

Eisenberg came on to talk about her duties as Master of Ceremonies of the Community News Group’s “Brooklyn’s Women of Distinction” event Tuesday night in Dyker Heights, where she’ll help honor more than two dozen women who have helped make the world a better place.

“They’re changing people’s lives in huge ways,” she said. “There are a lot of things to celebrate.”

Of course, Eisneberg also plugged her book “Screw Everyone — Sleeping My Way to Monogamy,” which is available on Amazon and at her website,

The boys also chatted with former Brooklyn Paper columnist Scott Sager, whose column “The Dad” ended its five-year run last week, and the boys said the they’re looking forward to the father of two daughters next column, “The Grand Dad.”

“Hopefully, that won’t come for a while,” Sager deadpanned.

All in all, it makes for a great listen.

“It’s about time we had a peer in here who can gave us an honest opinion about the job we do,” Kuntzman said. “And I’m not just talking about the radio stuff. I am, of course, also talking about my new play ‘Murder at the Food Coop,’ which will be at the New York Fringe Festival this year.”

Brooklyn Paper Radio can be found, as always, right here on, on iTunes at, on Mixlr, and of course, on Stitcher.

Brooklyn Paper Radio is recorded and podcast live every Thursday at 4:45 pm from our studio in The Brooklyn Paper Building in America’s Downtown.
