Incredible Guests, Endure The Rest
This podcast regularly has fantastic guests that I'm very interested in. To get to these guests is a test of endurance. First you have to listen to three people of unknown qualification read the front page of The Hollywood Reporter, then they blindly speculate in a circle (triangle?), until it just runs out of steam. Then, there's the interview! Finally the guest you've been waiting for! But, oh no, one of the people from the first part is back and she conducts the interview by teeing up stories the guest has told on the press circuit elsewhere. Between these stories she will inject her own moralizing (at one point stopping Ridley Scott to clarify with the audience that Ridley wasn't celebrating Kevin Spacey's transgressions. Thanks, miss, this was unclear until we pumped the breaks on the guest and went around the table to confirm we dislike awful behavior). This is a pod that needs a major change up, but the booker is an all-star!
