Excellent interview show
I don't like most interviews. I find them to be too self-serving and more than a little boring. I find the interviews on this show to be top notch. Not only do they keep me engaged and interested but for the first time in my life I find myself thinking "I wish that was longer." Unlike most podcasters who do interviews, you can tell that the host Dave Slusher has done the interview thing a time or two. He is able to get a conversation out of the interviewee instead of letting the time turn into the equivalent of a spoken press release. Even if you aren't very interested in interviews or the interviewee, the interviewer does an excellent job of keeping you interested in the conversation itself. I highly recommend this pocast.
Love the music, great content
I enjoy the content of this podcast, Dave is "recycling" old interviews and adding new, so I'm listening to people I might never have heard otherwise. Keep 'em coming, Dave! The music is catchy to the point of being an earworm, but who can resist that guitar?
