Can be annoying
The TechNation podcast features interviews of some interesting people, but the host, Moira Gunn, has this annoying habit of interrupting the interviewee to blurt out her knowledge of the subject, finish their sentences, etc. – as though she wants to show how smart she is. The interviews tend to drag on a little too long, and have these long musical interludes in the middle, which I find a waste of time.
