This podcast has a lot of information, but in my opinion there's too much time spent on the author's background and biography. This is important information, but it's not as interesting as the book itself. Also, the host brings up his own anecdotes, which would make for a great 2-way conversation but not so great as a podcast. The sound quality for the interviewee is quite crappy. For instance, I tried to listen to the Prokofiev episode while jogging, and the sound resolution & volume for the author was so awful that I didn't want to bother; the host sounded fine. Nevertheless, I do appreciate Dr. Poe's efforts in putting out this podcast.
