“Scripts” in radio in general, and for The Bob Edwards Show in particular, are a little different than those for television or film; since the interview conversation is by definition unscripted, the script contains the intros to the guests, along with questions researched by the production staff.

So you’ll not find Bob just running down the suggested questions, but rather using them as a rough guideline for directions the conversation might go.
