Interesting but inconsistent
Some really great interviews and episodes but some just don't hold up. A supervising editor could have made this better and more consistent.
I think some of this might apply to me
Fascinating with the potential for some self understanding.
BEST PODCAST AROUND!!
Jon Ronson is brilliant, reminds me of Louis Theroux with his line of questioning and total honesty, could listen to him all day. Even searched his name for other podcasts like this but couldn’t find any so hopefully he makes some soon!!! Best podcast I’ve listened to in years, and I’ve listened to 100’s. It’s a fantastic way to produce a podcast and I hope he does many more.
