"David McCraney is a beast! Love this freaking show (and the cookie reviews - wish those would return)!"

"Big fan of this show. David really needs to work on his interviewing technique - organisation, saying far FAR less in his extremely long-winded statements that masquerade as questions (which organisation would help with), taking out the "ummm, ahh" prevarications, and diversions (which organisation would help with) - but the content holds up."
