Promising start!

John J. Miller has proved himself adept at interviewing authors (check out his "Bookmonger" podcast), and his easy manner in evincing intelligent and thoughtful responses from his guests is on display here as well.


Great stuff!

Intellectual, yet accessible

John J. Miller does it again. Having been a long time listener of his Bookmongers podcast, I knew he was a good interviewer, so it was a real pleasure to listen to these. Instead of interviewing authors, each week, Miller interviews college professors about one of the Great Books. For instance, in the first episode, he interviews a political science professor about Hamlet. If you have an appreciation for literature and culture, you should listen to this podcast.
