I was never one who really wrote reviews for podcasts, but after listening to the episode where that god awful David Crosby came on and acted like an absolute idoit for the entire time, I had to come online and give Scott a 5 star review. He is always so well prepared for these interviews and always knows exactly the right questions to ask, and it always seems like the guests are genuinely surprised and honored by how much research he has done. Love this show. twitter/IG: @yiannisines

In depth interviews?

Scott Feinberg is a nice guy and sometimes gets good insight from the interviewee but really whenever the interviewee offers it without being asked. I find the approach to chronologically following the actor’s career to not be so interesting. You don’t really get in depth into the actor’s mindset and life like you do with Off Camera. The actors tend to be very flattered because they got to talk about their work for an hour and Scott is very flattering, sometimes obsequious. Some interviews are great but others are more formulaic.
