Great guest, poor hosts
The show has a good array of interesting guests, but the hosts never really capitalize. Despite limiting themselves to canned and obvious questions, they manage to consistently struggle with their words, as if asking someone why they chose to live in Ottawa over Toronto is difficult to articulate. Even more offensive are their follow up comments, which suggest they don't even listen to their guests' answers ("right on", "that's awesome", etc while typing can be heard in the background). It makes for pretty boring conversation. Get it together guys.
