Interesting guests, but...

I find myself wishing this podcast was more like the website; more educational. The host seems to find ways to talk about his struggles with starting and running Serious Eats in every episode, which becomes predictable and a little grating.

2.0 is a big no

I’d hope the new 2.0 version would improve things, but it’s only gotten worse.
•Ed still interrupts his guests and drones on about “when I started Serious Eats...”
•The volume is still too low
•It’s very NYC-centric
•The ask Kenji segment isn’t organized: it’s just Kenji rattling off way too much info way too fast without staying on point
•Recycled video content doesn’t translate well for radio, plus I’d rather have new content
•Ed’s new voiceovers are done in the most high pitched condescending voice
•Sasha Marx’s voice isn’t radio friendly
•More Stella Parks and Daniel Gritzer are what’s needed
•Most of the guests are great

Great guests.

A varied and interesting range of guests. I especially enjoy the family histories. I just wish Ed would stop interrupting his guests in the middle when they are telling their stories. He puts the words he’s expecting into their mouths, and we never hear what they were going to say.
