Acquired Taste but fascinating

After unsubscribing to the Letter years ago I was uncertain about this when it was forwarded to me. The Steven Wilson interview was a different side than I have heard. Now digging through the archive and great episodes with Jake Gold and Shep and Giles.

Thanks Bob

Loving these interviews, can’t wait ‘til every Thursday when the new ones come out. Great in-depth stories, stuff I want to know. Bob lets ‘em talk and is perfect at knowing when to slow the guest down, catching fascinating items that would otherwise get away. Bob’s choice in guests for the show is amazing.

Thanks,

Pretty good podcast, small change could make it great

Bob is a knowledgeable interviewer but the type who doesn't really listen and respond. He just goes on to the next prepared question. It's too bad, because that'd be a small thing to change and make this a really great podcast. This is not to say it's not worth listening to, just something that might pull you out of a conversation that is disjointed at times.
