Intelligent

Books, music, and science I would never know about otherwise. Well interviewed, but some of the audio is very bad -- even the alleged studio pieces. If you can get past that, they're worth the time.

Buy another mic!

It'd be better if the host weren't sitting 10 feet away from the microphone. Also, it would be nice if the episode guide gave a hint of what the subject is, rather than being an exhaustive biography of the guest.
