Perfect for the format
Clear, concise and makes you want to read the book.
Miller lets the guest and the book shine!
John Miller is very skilled at questioning and guiding the interviewee in a way that makes his guest more effective. The first two podcasts have been excellent. It combines helping the listener to learn the key points while simultaneously digging in to some of the more complicated issues raised by the book. Great balance!
I very much enjoyed the first two episodes on Macbeth and Pride & Prejudice. Looking forward to all future episodes!
