The New Talk Show is refreshingly different.

I was a huge fan of the old The Talk Show on 5by5 network and like most Talk Show fans i was bit angry when John moved his show to Mule and i wanted to give this New Talk Show a One-star.

Thankfully, i decided to wait and give Gruber a 2nd chance and after having listened to the first 6 episodes i can safely say that the New Talk Show show is refreshingly different.

John is getting better and better as a host with each episode. John's plan to have guests on show was just a brilliant move. It makes the the show interesting and unpredictable in a nice sort of way.

Work in Progress

The 2nd episode was much better than the 1st.

I hope the Thurrot-Gruber talk happens as was suggested by John in the 2nd episode.

I wish this podcast was available in tune-in iOS radio app.

Getting Better

The Show is actually more interesting content wise. That is simply because you can hear the perspectives of the guests. The Old Talk Show had a lot of good thing to it, but for a nerdy guy who's read everything on Daring Fireball, the shows could often be pretty predictable. That really gets fixed.
ON the other had, the bad part is that the Gruber is great with his insights, but seems to struggle with the host kind of things.. Intro etc etc. It can be good for people though as it makes it all feel so organic and real, but over the whole show of over an hour, it can get tough to keep paying attention.
The sound recording is getting better too, but I think it could be much better with a little knob tweaking.
