Excellent podcasts!

Dave manages to get some great guests!

Great guest, too much interuption and rambling questions

Great recent guests, but still interrupting guests, before the guests even finish answering (disrespectful!). Questions don't seem prepared, and it’s not pretty. Multiple times I heard a question start like this: "What um, you were mentioning um, i had another question here, could we talk about um..." and then asking 3 questions before getting the first one out!
This is an easy fix, just prepare. Rehearse if need be. Please stop interrupting guests!

Sum-1-? ,

Anyone fish out there?
