Outstanding interviewer and so sweet

Not to get too personal, but Paul is a great interviewer and very sweet to his guests. His questions and style are accommodating, not defensive or rude, but helpful and understanding. This is what podcasts should be like, and what all media should aspire too. Really. Enjoy and please, Paul, makes lots more. I love the Smithsonian and the fitness, plus the author reviews. Keeps me fresh and smart :)
