The best!

Hank Garner is the best interviewer I’ve ever heard. Excellent show!

Except for the audio

Garner is a skilled interviewer who brings his guests to talk--and lets them do it. His guests are interesting and lively. In short, it's an excellent podcast.

Now, if he could only get control of the audio. What causes those jumps and nulls? I have a hunch is has to do with some software he's using to process the recording, but it's not working out very well. If the show weren't so excellent, I'd bail out due to the audio deficiencies.

Just back your ears and say to yourself (because it's true) "The show is worth it. Just put up with the audio because the show is great."

Fantastic podcast

Hank Garner manages to get authors of all genres to come on his podcast and sometimes comics like Jay Mohr might drop by. It is enjoyable to learn how these authors came to hone their craft while doing something they love to do.
