    But it would be great if Russo would let his guests answer his questions more often. I like the podcast but Mike has a tendency to ask questions, answer them, and then ask if the guest agrees. And since he already knows the answer he seems disengaged when his guests are talking. Must be a carryover from being a sports writer looking for sound bites in a short media scrum.
