Strong Interviewer great discussions
I enjoy the pod. Interesting guests. I would love to see Thad do a show with Dr. Steven Novella. I think he would put up some interesting challenges to your thinking. In today’s society he definitely offers a fundamentally different reference than the vast majority of people are using to perceive their world.
One of the few podcasts that fundamentally challenges your most cherished beliefs and you will be better for it, or at least, I am.
Thad is mostly insufferable as an interviewer - constantly making noise and asserting his opinion of the interviewee’s work/stances. Also, there is a profound, smug arrogance in his demeanor that reminds me of my sociology and urban planning advisors in college. That said, he still manages to string along conversations worth a listen because he does get very interesting people to come on with him. Thad, you’re not all-knowing and you would benefit by being less of a participant in every interview.
