Excellent but…

I haven’t had broadcast TV for 40 years so didn’t know of Mr Todd til this podcast so I thought it was just my annoyance w his perpetual interruption of guests. After reading other reviews, I see I’m not alone. I guess this tendency is on account of the nature of his television show. If I’m being charitable, it is bc of his enthusiasm and getting caught up in the discussion.

The discussion topics are thoughtful and timely. The guests he is able to obtain impressive. All in all v engrossing even when they get into the political weeds. Just subtracted one star for the interruption habit.
Also appreciate the isolation of sport discussions to the end of episode since it totally doesn’t interest me.

Chuck

I really loved the Richard Engle interview but you constantly interrupted him. Literally asked a question and then interrupted him and answered with your own thoughts. I want to hear your guests!!!
