zach lowe's low post podcasts kind of annoy me sometimes. as a host, he always wants to have a discussion w/ the guests, which can get complicated w/ the delay when talking over the phone. i think it works best face-to-face (i.e. no interruptions) or if you just ask questions and let the guest speak, like a normal interview. it's weird to me to have van gundy on as a guest twice a year and then take up 40% of the time w/ your own voice. it's a different case in simmons/lowe podcasts, where it happens much more frequently, so it can be more of a conversation.
lowe also wants to cover all the bases all the time, which is what i think you're getting at, neo. he takes forever to ask any question. i actually have the same problem w/ jon stewart. ugh, just finish the question already!
