One of my favorites

I'm going to give this 5 stars because Vivian is a great host, has great guests, and I have loved every episode of this podcasts that I've listened to. The host Vivian has a great attitude, a great radio voice/personality, and is a pleasure to listen to. Hearing him interact with his guests is always very enjoyable.

Now, I'm going to complain about it a little bit, and make you wonder what's wrong with me. Why am I rating this podcasts 5 stars and saying it's one of my favorites, and then dedicated a paragraph to complaining about it? Well, read on, I suppose: my main gripe with the show has nothing to do with the host or the content in general, but the way it's run like a radio show of the olden days. The commercials come up a little too often, and sometimes, the guests have to be cut off to "take a break." To me, that's one of the aspects of radio that podcasts has done away with, and it's unfortunate to see a podcast still run like a radio show.

All in all, though, I love this podcast, and I think it needs to be heard by more people. You'll always have the theme song stuck in your head after you listen to it like me!
