Who is being interviewed?

I really wanted to love this podcast, I’ve been a fan of Amanda for years, but I was pretty disappointed in her interviewing skills. The focus felt very much on her. Someone else mentioned this too, but at a certain point, the guests seem to give up and start asking her questions instead.
