Interesting and entertaining

Loved this ... hadn't heard of Jay before but was interested to hear of some of his past experiences and the people he met. Love Alan' s style of interviewing and only listened to this as I find Alan very amusing !

Episode's guest Jay Parini was too much

What could hv been a great interview Is too much "ME, ME, ME", & waay too much name dropping. So much of both! I had to turn this one off. Alan is a great host, but Parini doesn't take a breathe. He truly sucks all of the air out of the room. By the time he HAD to squeeze his friendship / just knowing Dustin Hoffman, it was time overdue to turn this off.
