Great way to keep up with all things Tucson

Great Conversations

Zach brings great perspective and curiosity to the airwaves in Tucson. I enjoy his style, variety of guests, and his ability to talk about really nerdy concepts in a way that makes sense to the majority of people. As a nerd myself, I appreciate how he uses data and facts as the basis of his conversations and content. It’s a great show to tune in to regularly. :)

Solid show could easily be improved with two tweaks: Cut the mentions of Tucson by 1/3 to 1/2. Considerable overkill on use of the city name. Also, cut back on the redundancy. Significant time spent (wasted) on repeating multiple repetitive redundant times what’s about to be talked about, what’s being talked about and what was just talked about.
Give the audience a little more credit. If we’ve found you treat us as an intelligent, attentive audience not a bunch of third graders lit up with adderall. Otherwise a really solid show.
