Stop interrupting

I love his show. Interesting guests.
Sometimes I have to stop listening because the endless interruptions and talking over his guests, finishing their sentences is so frustrating.
We know you are prepared. We know how much you love your guests.
Please allow us the full experience apart from your taking over.
Your wit and sense of humour is greatly appreciated.

Best podcast

I have tried listening to podcasts before and have found myself bored. I find Alec to be a great interviewer and I listen to every podcast available to listen to of Here’s the thing. I am anxiously awaiting for the next installment of Here’s the thing.

Really good podcast!

Alec seems genuinely interested in his guests and even if he has a guest that I am not that familiar with, I find myself riveted. I also like that he share his own anecdotes and stories, especially from early in his career. I have subscribed to this and look forward to each new episode.
