Good Chats, but…

I love the chats, but the host has a very weird style of talking: I’ve heard people ending every sentence with a question, but he even says the word “Umm” with a question, “Umm?”

It’s a persnickety little thing, but if you’re listening to it for an hour, it gets a little stuck in the craw.

Also, the host tries to moderate the conversation a little too sternly, instead of letting the topics grow organically.
