I want to like this podcast. I really do. It covers a lot of the stuff that I like and it's generally well-produced. The trouble is with the hosts. Stackpole has a smooth, mechanical delivery that reminds me too much of a DJ on a late evening smooth jazz radio station, while the other two hosts sound stiff and awkward. Their interviews never really sound like conversations, with follow-up questions being rare and superficial. Plus, the thing that grates the most is the incessant uncomfortable giggling that is prompted by even the mildest, least unfunny remark - at one point I finally said to my iPod "stop laughing! The person you're interviewing didn't say anything to laugh about!" It's like listening to a radio "morning zoo" type show being done at the high school level. It sounds like the hosts are uncomfortable talking to anyone, and there is no depth to their interviews, which indicates a lack of interest in their interview subjects.
