Ken Burns

Ken Burns is insane. I mean it. Hitler looked to the United States’ treatment of American Indians for inspiration leading to concentration camps and the Holocaust? Hey Kenny, if you’re looking for pathetic and cowardly immigration policy, you don’t need a history book. Look no further than the Afghan allies the US government left behind in Afghanistan.

Dull and bland like the magazine

A pseudo-intellectual pseudo-libertarian conducts uninspired interviews.

Stop interrupting

I agree with others who have made the same observation, stop interrupting your guests. He gets even worse when he disagrees with the guest, I had to shut off a recent one about 10 minutes in—the dude he agreed with the tone was: “ok, he can talk, some.” The lady he didn’t agree with couldn’t finish a single sentence. Perhaps Nick could just run a solo commentary podcast to get his opinions off his chest for those in the world interested, but his interview skills are lacking.
