Good content but frustrated with host interrupting guests

Don and JJ - I have loved your podcast for a long time. I’ve recommended it to MANY people. But I’ve been increasingly frustrated by Don’s constant interruption of your guests. It’s incredibly hard to listen to an interview when the host frequently talks over the guest and/or cuts them off with their own thoughts.

In addition, I realize that you want your podcast to reach people of all backgrounds and faiths. But it’s frustrating when you have a Christian guest and you essentially detract from their message by trying to make it less Christian. Let your guest express their faith how THEY want to, and let people decide for themselves. Stop trying to minimize the faith of your guests.

I’m giving 3 stars for these reasons and I’m not sure if I can keep listening, to be honest. I have gotten value out of the teaching you offer and the guests, but please work on reducing the interruptions and allow your guests to speak for themselves, both literally and in terms of their faith and values.

Enjoyable

Helpful and enjoyable in season 1. Season 2 starts drifting downhill and I completely dropped this podcast at season 3. Tired of storybrand guys focusing on their own story and not mine.
