I’ll miss this podcast

In a Vox podcast system clogged with mostly politics and news, this was a breath of fresh air. I enjoy the other podcasts, but this was the one thoughtful pop culture podcast I’ve found. Great guests, fascinating insights, and a once weekly respite from the dreadful news and politics of our time. I will miss this a lot. I hope whatever replaces it can capture the scope of I Think You’re Interesting’s ambition.

Great Interviews with a Smart Host

VanDerWerff is a really fantastic interviewer, and each episode is a great dig into the minds of the subject. I like how the show tries to get deeper than just a typical profile on an actor or writer or whatever. It’s just so well organized

Of course!

Todd VanDerWerff's fatal flaw as a writer, beyond awkward construction and a constant need for a second draft, has always been his insistence and reliance on the first person. He can't keep himself out of his reviews and articles and he's never told me anything about himself I wanted to hear.

So it makes total sense that his podcast would be called "I THINK YOU'RE INTERESTING," which is not just a self-centered approach, it's also a cloying and patronizing statement.

It's particularly funny that he aims that sentiment at people far more accomplished, far more talented and far better known.

I Think You're Interesting? To quote Broadcast News: "Who the hell cares what YOU think?"
