Interesting and always enjoyable

Dave is an excellent interviewer and always chooses interesting interviewees. Highly recommended!

Towards a better understanding

Just worked my way up to about episode 30 of this tremendous series and am absolutely thrilled to have come across it. In every show there's some snippet or line of thought that'll chime with one's own experience and shine a bit of light on our shared experience of the world.

Getting Better Acquainted

As conversations rather than interviews, GBA episodes are nearly always fascinating - especially when Dave talks about his own childhood and relationships. Compelling stuff!
