  1. Honestly I found this one of the best episodes yet. I think there is a dynamic between the three of you which adds an energy that is very appealing. Plus brief alliances can be produced by 2/3 of the hosts which is much more provocative of deeper dialogue, and limits the natural point/counterpoint vibe of a two person show, or one with a less foundational guest.
