Fantastic

I enjoy the range of topics and guests. As an American, I especially love the British viewpoints on American history. Melvyn can be a bit abrupt and harsh on his guests. I sometimes cringe in anticipation of his telling a guest to essentially “move along” from a long-winded answer that doesn’t cover what he wants to hear about. But it adds something to the show, I guess.

(During the Grant episode, he did seem to have a excessive curiosity Ku Klux Klan, which led to more discussion of them than warranted.)
