John V ZZZ ,

Five Stars for The John Batchelor Show!

John Batchelor is the best host. He sets up a medium form conversation (~10 minutes per segment) and then lets his guests talk. He covers a multitude of topics with both regular contributors and a wide array of guests.

The show is a must-listen for me (all four hours, every day). I love the podcast for when I can’t listen live or can’t stay awake until the show ends at 1 am (ET).

I pray the show will continue for many decades to come.

Vox Publicus ,

The real deal

John is a class act.

JC Pathguy ,

Master at interviews, news, reviews

John Batchelor has been one of my favorite podcasts for years. The topic diversity is inspiring and fulfills many of my own interests, such as space, history, biblical archaeology, rational fact-based politics, and one of my new favorites, Are we in a civil war, as compared to the context of The Roman Empire. I choose many books based on his author interviews. John Batchelor remind me that America is a great country. Thanks!
