Great format with interviews along with photos

I believe this is the best photography podcast out there. Catherine obviously researches her guests which shows a sincere interest in them. Listening to the photographers talk about how they made certain photos while we get to view them on screen is a great learning experience. It's a shame when a guest doesn't get to finish a thought because they are interrupted by Leo when he comes upon some picture and cuts them off with a question about that picture. Even with that complaint, all of the positives about the show outweigh it.. I enjoy the show and am happy that I've learned about many wonderful photographers' work.
