Dr. John Lott squared off against three gun control advocates (Lois Beckett, a reporter for The Guardian and a former reporter for the left wing ProPublica; Robert Spitzer, a political scientist at SUNY Cortland; and an officer from the Baltimore City Sheriff’s Department). You get some idea where NPR is coming from given that their page for the show labels only Lott as “a gun rights proponent,” but provides no similar labels for the other guests. The first 23 minutes have only Beckett or Spitzer.

This first audio only has the portion of the interview which starts when Dr. Lott is involved in the discussion.
The entire show is available here, including initial statements by Beckett and Spitzer.
Beckett talked about how the prospect of reciprocity was “terrifying” police. Here are two surveys that indicate police generally have a different view of reciprocity and concealed handgun laws: NACOP survey results 2016 on reciprocity. A 2013 Survey of Police by PoliceOne found strong results regarding concealed handgun permits (available here see question 19).
