Deleted this podcast
I had high hopes for this podcast, but just deleted it after listening to about 10 minutes of Jake Tapper's interview. The interviewer seemed to have to override or condescend over and over and over. It was actually painful to listen to given how much I respect Jake Tapper's own interviewing style.
Great Guests, Annoying host
The Atlantic editor is very annoying. He often interrupts the interesting and informative guests to make unrelatable and unfunny jokes. Jeff, stop doing that. Otherwise, I have learned a lot from the Guests— even when I didn’t know who they were beforehand.
Jeffrey Goldberg is very condescending towards his guest. In episode 1, he frequently spoke over and cut off Adichie, and completely disregarded Coates. The conversation was good but the moderator could have treated Coates and Adichie with much more respect than he did.
