ok. I'm out. the host's commitment to interjecting (mostly) unnecessary questions is driving me nuts. love The Daily content but Barbaro (?sp) is not a good interviewer.

Alex Mercedes He's not interviewing. These podcasts are audio companions of NYT articles. He asks the questions to make sure everyone who is listening is able to follow. Everyone's audible acurity is not the same. It allows those like myself to catch up.
