This podcast consistently gets brilliant, articulate, incredibly interesting guests at its disposal. I find myself re-listening to episodes now and again, and this is the only podcast I've ever done that with. Subscribe and listen – you wilI learn a lot, and not only about biotech. Marc has interviewed physicists, geologists, astronomers, computer scientists, and others, and they have all been inspiring and educational. Unfortunately the one thing working against this podcast is the host. I certainly wouldn't rather a bombastic mainstream-media type, but Marc is too much the opposite. He has a very irritating habit of chortling almost constantly - when he asks a question, when he listens to an answer, simply all the time. Furthermore he has so much trouble formulating his thoughts on the air that listening to him try to put together a question is excruciating. His interjections are either blubbering expressions of amazement at whatever the guest is talking about, or sometimes even go against the natural flow of the interview, both of which the guest must maneuver around. Marc is a smart guy and would be a great host if he: - Listened to a recording of his show and noticed his chortling, then made a concerted effort to not do it in the future. - Let the guests loose by asking broad questions and letting them talk pretty much about whatever they wanted. Despite these problems, I still rate Futures in Biotech with 4 stars simply because of the mind-blowing interviews and subject matter, neither of which I have found anywhere else.
