Good podcast, with a caveat

I enjoy it most times- and the times when I don’t enjoy it are the times when host Yasha Mounk, with the interviewing skill of an eager adolescent, speaks over/ interrupts his guest, and launches into his lectures and tirades. Please, please let the guest speak, that’s why you have him/her there.

Different View on Yasha Mounk

I read a review of the podcast that dissed Yasha’s interviewing style. While I have never submitted a comment before, I thought someone needed to express an opposing opinion...so hear goes:
Yasha is my favourite interviewer! I love the enthusiastic, informed, no BS style he brings to the shows he hosts.
