Some are awesome

Some of the interviews are fantastic, but at least one of the interviewers needs to watch how interviews work. Uninspired questions that most of the guests handle deftly, but why should they have to? Anyway I’m still going to listen...but with my finger on skip

Patricia Danaher is so boring

I’ve listened to one episode and all she did was ask questions trying to make the guest agree to social and environmental activist talking points. Very dull. Very fake.
