The show has a very nice dynamic...there's a freedom of spirit about it. And a bit of an irreverent, anti-religious agenda (which I think is a good thing, given the perception of religion in contemporary culture). Good guests. Interesting topics. The co-hosts are quick-witted and help keep the show moving along. As with most interview shows, guest mostly appear when they have something to promote...so there's alway some "selling the soap" going on...but I don't mind that. I've purchased some of the books myself after hearing the interviews. I find the show to have two shortcomings...one minor, the other a bigger deal. 1) Steve seems to be in love with the sound of his own voice. He has a nice, deep voice...but the way he draws out his speaking and enunciation becomes a bit tiring. It's sort of a throwback to radio driven by people with deep voices. I'd rather hear him "just talk" and let the voice be what it is. 2) The show feels too short. Often, when they are just getting to the heart of the matter in interviews, here comes another commercial break...and really destroys the momentum. I understand the need to pay the bills, but I would prefer that they spend a little less time with all the dancing around before and after ("we've known each other since...")...and at least a couple less jokes per show, and let the guests talk more. That being said, I think it's a great little podcast and have enjoyed pretty much every episode I've listened to so far. Definitely recommended.
