Discussions with Historians about their New Books

I agree, less interruptions.

Overall, this podcast is really good, but Professor Poe does interrupt quite frequently with his own points and stories, drawing parallels between his studies and experiences with what the guest is talking about. I understand why he does this, it makes for decent conversation when there is no audience, but in this case there is. Also, it would be great if the interviewee's mic level could approximate Poe's -- there's a substantial volume difference, which makes the interruptions very noticeable.

good, but needs improvement

The authors and books are fascinating, if you can get past the 15 minutes at the beginning of each program that are wasted on academic-insider shop talk and the noises of presenter Marshal Poe's gastrointestinal and upper respiratory tracts. He's apparently conducting these interviews by phone using a headset with a microphone, which means that his every breath, gulp, burp, cough, hawk and snort are broadcast direct into the listener's ear. Very unpleasant. Use a speakerphone instead! And don't inject yourself into your interviews so much. We're listening because we want to hear what the authors have to say, not what you have to say.

Too many interruptions, let the guest speak

Questions, book selection, and guests are essentially good, but host's constant and loud "um-hum"s every 5 to 10 seconds are incredibly annoying and signficantly distract from the experience.
