Great concept, underwhelming format

I quite like the idea here. I'm always down for more CanCon in my podcast feed, and history is a topic of perpetual interest to me. The one thing that bothers me about thisi show is the Q&A format. It seems pretty obvious (to me, anyway) that the speakers already know the answers to the questions asked, and as a result the presentation comes across as rather stilted and rehearsed. I'd probably enjoy the show a lot more if they presented it as a conversation rather than an interview.
