"MIB is a great host; he's well-researched, entertaining, and engaging. "

"I did not expect to like this podcast as much as I do. Mr. Black has cultivated an on-screen (and on-twitter) image of being a sort of passive-aggressive uber-jerk, but that is NOT what you get here. In the podcast MIB is a surprisingly good host: focused, attentive and always listening and responding to what his guest is saying, and not saying. You'll probably want to pick and choose based on which guests you want to hear from, but if you have the time, you'll likely enjoy any episode. "
