I listened to Paul almost everyday while I lived in St. Louis. His is the best talk show on radio over there. He is a great interviewer and is always able to pull a good conversation out of any guest. His best segments are with Aaron Barnhart and whatever comedian he invites onto the show. Cheers to Paul for putting his show on iTunes.
Always enjoy Paul's interviews. Even the guests talking about subjects I have no interest in. That says a lot about how good Paul is.
