Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet, but they're typically pretty good on these things:

Just had a chance to listen to it. Frankly a horrible interview, the interviewee sounded like he wanted to be somewhere else.

Also interesting/annoying: a "hop engineer" from miller/coors called in with a 'question,' which was more of a poorly-executed advert for their hop extracts. "They can't be skunked!" Not much of a selling point if you ask me.

Yes, it was terrible.  Funny because the show is typically great

Makes you wonder what the experts in other fields think of the interviews *you* find interesting, eh?

Personally, I don't wonder.  I read/listen to all sides and disregard the rubbish.
