Best Ever!

I am a huge fan of Willie Geist! I think he is very warm and personable and makes his guests feel welcome. His interviews are spot in and truly brilliant. The podcast just continues from seeing him on Sunday mornings.

John Mulaney episode

At first I was glad that this episode was well over one hour long. Then I realized the guest was John Mulaney (who?). I realize comedy as with other forms of entertainment is subjective but my god, this guy was simply not funny, let alone entertaining. But congrats to Willie for out Ed McMahoning even Ed McMahon. At least Carson was funny. Your ridiculous laughter was embarrassing. Listening made my daily 7 mile walk more torturous than it had to be. I’m glad you were my third podcast and only had to listen to 30 minutes. As a whole I do enjoy your podcast however this one was terrible.
