Terrific conversations

Unlike most straight-to-the-point interview shows, Department of Tangents gives you laid-back conversations with talented people, that (as the name suggests) can go just about anywhere. Feels less like you're listening to a celebrity plug their latest work, and more like you're listening to two friends hanging out shooting the breeze. Zaino does a terrific job of putting his subjects at ease and simply letting them hold forth. I also like how the show alternates between long and short episodes. Sometimes I just want a quick fix!

Great start

Nick is a great interviewer who shows a genuine interest in his subjects. He comes prepared to turn the interview into a fun, frank, and insightful conversation. A great start to a new podcast that mixes somewhat obscure but interesting guests with more recognizable names. Looking forward to upcoming shows.
