Get better interviewers

The books and authors covered in the podcast are ver interesting. But the people conducting the interviews are adequate at best and not infrequently embarrassing.

Get Rid of Ryan Tripp

I was listening to his interview of Douglas Egerton for his book on the Adams dynasty and could not get through more than 10 minutes of the discussion because of his intolerably long winded, multi part, and highly specific questions. I have to rewind the podcast in order to comprehend what he is asking each time and I find it impossible to keep track. And his interview style is uncomfortable because it seems as if he is reading his questions verbatim as written in front of him. He makes for awkward, stilted and overlong transitions in what should be a fluid and engaging conversation. More professional interviewing is needed, in addition to better sound quality. The subjects of the books are interesting but I cannot spend my time listening to this subpar product.

Good Authors / Poor Podcast

Although the authors tend to be very articulate and topics interesting the production quality of the podcast is low. I just listened to the Greg Downs interview and the questions asked seemed like multipart essay questions from an exam rather than a interview.
