Much better and much worse than before

The New Talk Show is somehow both much better and much worse than its previous incarnation. Better because Gruber seems to have rediscovered his love for making podcasts and because of the great guests he's had on so far. Worse because it does tend to get a bit less structured now that Dan Benjamin is out of the mix.

Also, Dan is much better at reading ads than John will probably ever be.

Entertaining and informative

I've been a listener for a couple of years and keep going back to John Gruber's podcast. Always good spirited entertainment and very informative.

This show was once amongst the best in the Apple and general tech discussion podcasts, but over the last year quality and especially focus has been lacking. Episodes are now regularly 3 hours long and feature at least an hour of what can only be described as "chitchat". A good example of this is the latest episode 143, where a 2 hour and 48 minute episode contained less than 40 minutes of actual topical relevant discussion. So far these changes have only pushed the show to the bottom of my overcast queue, but if it continues it will be pushed off, and I'm guessing I'm not alone.
