Good Stuff!

Dr. Mallen, aka The Id DM, has a continuous cavalcade of guests on this show that run the gamut of the gaming hobby. He's a great interviewer with an approachable style. My one nitpick with the show is audio quality, but this is one of those rare shows where the quality of the content outshines any technical deficiencies.
