Interesting podcast. Joanna Robinson is a fine host and has interesting and inciteful things to say, but David Chen needs to learn that silence is sometimes golden. His tangents drive me crazy. He'll say that we'll recap the epsode, but 30 minutes and 6 uninteresting tangents later, we finally get back to the topic. I think I'll listen to the other Westworld podcast that Joanna is part of.
