Love It.

Love the show! Jessie is a great co-host. People try to cut her down because she’s a woman with ideas and comments she wants to add to the conversation. She adds a lot to the show. Her excitement and knowledge is a breath of fresh air.

Great guests

Not to jump on the down-on- Jessie bandwagon as she seems like a very likeable person, so this is meant as constructive criticism and not to be mean. Jessie: Try not to interrupt so often just as a guest starts answering a question, usually knocking them off a train of thought, and it's often just to relate some connection to your own experience of them or your upbringing. I can't count the times where a guest starts to make a point and then never gets there. Secondly, because you're such a superfan, you gush and praise too much, and ANY time a guest starts to self-deprecate or express self-doubt, you cut them off at the pass and tell them how wonderful they are. This usually kills any depth to the interview. Leonard is a good interviewer--leads the guest, reacts, adds a little knowledge, but rarely if ever knocks the interview off course.

I’m sure Jessie means well

I appreciate her passion, but I cannot listen to this show anymore because of Jessie.
