Chotiner has a good thing going on his show.
Chotiner is simply a wonderful host. He knows how to have engaging, probing conversations with his guests that feel anything but pat. I even enjoyed his conversation with Andrew Sullivan, whom I find mostly intolerable. My only gripe is that it feels too short, I would love for the show to be about 70 minutes.
