Rich, Relevant, and Rewarding Conversations
Blair is a great interviewer and conversationalist and he has marvelous guests. The conversations keep a lucid thread even when they get into and out of delightful tangles. This is such a great contribution to contemporary LDS thought.
Engaging and Worthwhile
Blair is a thoughtful interviewer and asks insightful questions. I have thoroughly enjoyed every guest. And have added their books to my library. My mind has been expanded through these conversations. I also like that the podcast is just the right length of time for my occasional hour long commute. Highly recommend.
Blair has a way of interviewing his guests that is so engaging. He is able to ask the questions that get the conversation moving right along. One of my top podcasts I love to listen too.
