Interesting but snotty

I’m enjoying the content but not enjoying the pattern of treating Nastassia as the scapegoat.

Informative and really educational

Dave is really good about disseminating information and his knowledge of food and all things related is wildly vast and so helpful. I cannot stand Nastassia becuase all she does is sigh and make disruptive comments and noises that are simply irritating, I suppose she's just providing non sequiturs. Anyway, I want to like her and I keep hoping that I will at the end of every episode but I just can't stand her uselessness. Oh and I like the "Classics in the Field" segment and I've actually ordered some books because of it.

Drifting into chaos lately

I got more out of the show back when they spent most of the hour talking about cooking issues, with the occasional amusing tangent. When Dave is in top form, his knowledge, creativity, passionately held opinions on food, and sense of humor make for truly compelling and informative listening.

In recent months though, it feels like the show has become 85% off-topic chatter, and I often find myself identifying with the sometimes exasperated sounding producer as he struggles to keep the show focused. Dave, Hammer, et al are likeable and often very funny, but I miss getting to the end of an episode and feeling like I’ve spent an hour deepening my knowledge of cooking issues.
