My favorite episodes are the interviews (I feel like your interviewing is an underappreciated skill?  It is refreshing to have an interviewer who really dives in deep like you do)  I wish this one was twice as long, at least.  Fascinating.  I'm gonna look for some of Wilson Moses' books.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed this! I get the impression that some listeners prefer scripted episodes, and some prefer interviews, which is itself a reason to have the mix. (Also having both makes the series more varied.)
