Great work landing the best American columnist in the past 50 years as a guest. Fascinating commentary on politics in the era of Trump.

It’s not about you

I love the people you interview and the topics are important and timely. However your interviewing skills need honing. Two major issues. First, you intrude your thoughts and opinions and “witty” comments far too often. Especially now that you’ve been interviewed we don’t need to hear from you. You did this to distraction with the recovered addict. He was kind and even thanked you for saying what he was getting at, but as a listener I found it very distracting and inappropriate on your part. Second, you frequently ask double-barreled and even triple-barreled questions. E.g., “What did you learn from this experience, what is the take-away for you?” Which question do you want him to answer since there may well be two distinct answers. I was a university researcher and teacher. Especially as a qualitative researchers who did interviews with individuals and couples, I learned how you need to ask a simple, straightforward question, pause and let them answer it and then and only then ask a follow up question if I wanted more clarity or detail. Although I was a professor of family life I never would tell them what they needed to do, etc. listen to the guy on 99pi. He does great interviews.

Important, Entertaining, Concise

Wow - I was riveted during the entire interview of the first podcast I listened to. So many podcasts are 15 minutes of idea fluffed into 45 minutes of air. This is the reverse. Matheson makes great use of my time while engaging me in some of the important questions of the day.
