    Depends on what you're interested in. Classic Gilbert it isn't. I can't really pick out one episode. Some of the episodes with people you've never heard of turn out to be really good. Even Gary Busey was good in an unexpected way.

    If you're old enough to remember them I highly recommend the Barbara Feldon and Adam West episodes. I've only heard about half of them.

    The thing to remember is you're not getting much of filthy racist asshole Gilbert in these. This is much more old Groucho impression Joe Franklin nostalgia Gilbert.

    These aren't wacky comedy. They're interviews.

    I started listening to these a while back on your recommendation. Thanks! I've listened to the first nine and have enjoyed them all. He does a great podcast. I love the old Hollywood stories. And it's interesting to hear Gilbert more as the real Gilbert and less as the character he portrays onstage.

    It"s Billy West - the static was a voice effect.

    So many great ones to choose from. Weird Al might be a fun way to kick it off. If you really love old Hollywood stories then maybe the Dick Cavett or Robert Osbourne might be a good introduction for you.

    Does Gilbert get filthy with the people he is interviewing? Adam West was my childhood hero. I can't imagine anyone talking to the caped crusader that way.... old chum.
