The Best Interview Show

Jesse Thorn is my favorite interviewer. He asks intelligent, thoughtful questions and is always well-researched before going in. He doesn’t let up when guests try to dodge or cop out, but constantly maintains a high level of kindness and respect. I think the interviews get deeper than a lot of the subjects expect and the value is far more substantial for the listener than most other chat shows.

Jay Leno is...

annoying with his fake humblenes. Otherwise Bullseye is a pretty decent show

The perfect balance.....

.....Jesse is such a good interviewer, balances out intelligent and interesting questions with a bit a fan boy, but not too much. Really interesting interviewees - always a good use of time - I feel informed and entertained every episode. I listen to a lot of podcasts, and this is the top of my list.
