Always insightful...

Andrew is a "zig in a world of zags" - I recently discovered the podcast(the laggard that I am) and was not disappointed in the least. Well done, civil and informationally expansive. Thank you.

Interesting content but finding interruptions rude

I’m a new listened to the show and was intrigued by the content. However, the degree to which the host interrupts and talks over the guest is distracting and off putting. I would encourage the host to allow his guests to speak as they are incredibly interesting!

Great Guest in Keohane; Let Him Soeak

Joe Keohane was a terrific guest but the repeated interruptions to detail previous guests detracted greatly. Also, is it possible to adjust the sound so that each speaker is at the same volume?
