I quite enjoy this podcast. He often asks thought-provoking questions and has really great, intelligent guests. I disagree with those who would argue that Champion doesn't come off as pretentious, though. He often stumbles over his own words, asking questions in 60 words that would be much more clear in 10. He has, multiple times, confused his guests this way. Sometimes he seems confused by himself. There have been many times I couldn't understand what the hell he was trying to ask, and it's not because I'm an idiot. His guests frequently need him to repeat his questions. It's sort of cringe-worthy. I get the impression that Champion is not an artist himself, so sometimes it's a little embarrassing when he has analyzed a text or film, all extra-pedantic, and then asks the artist a specific question about that analysis when, for the artist, much of creation is done at a subconscious level. I think this is why Mike Leigh got so pissed off in their interview. Too much head, not enough heart. Still, it's a good podcast, and Champion seems well-intentioned. I appreciate it.
