His guests are great, but
Garlin's screaming and loud CACKLING make this podcast virtually unlistenable. It doesn't sound genuine & is just flat out irritating.
Interesting Guests, Annoying Voice
Jeff seems to have a great report with all of his guests, and it is always great to hear commentary on anything from the likes of Larry David and Amy Poehler, among others.
However, as other have commented, Jeff frequently interrupts his guests when they are in the midst of stories or jokes, often with rather unfunny quips of his own. He also has one of the most annoying laughs you'll find.
If you enjoy Adam Carolla's style of interviewing, but with better guests (through the first 15 episodes) then you'll enjoy this podcast.
Just hope he learns to let his guests speak over him once in a while.
Seems like a nice guy that has made it, not on humor, but on pandering to those more talented over the years.
Very interesting - Awkward laughing
Good podcast with great guests. However, Jeff's awkward laughing is a bit over the top at times. Makes it hard to listen.
