Amazing

I’m so thrilled I found this...great mind blowing discussions with very interesting guests.

Current Format: Two Guests, Zero Host

This is a podcast with a host who has zero interviewing skill. He should focus on being a guest on other podcasts; either that or buy a book on broadcasting.

Great

This is a great podcast in general but if you could just have Stephen Fry every episode that would be outstanding.
