The Tablet web site is filled with enjoyable, quirky stories and sprightly writing. I keep hoping the podcast will deliver something similar in an audio format, but it keeps disappointing. I'm finding it earnest, humorless and dull, which is a huge surprise given the material it has to draw on. It's not all bad -- it's thoughtful and informative, if soporific, and there have been a few really good episodes. I am just getting tired of enduring the tedium to hear the occasional winner. As a longtime listener, I am seriously considering unsubscribing and just reading the web site. Hoping the tone and approach will change one of these days.
