pretty much since 1983 i listened to Howard for the interviews (and the comedy way back when the show was funny) but the past years Howard has lost my interest: every interview is the same now. i listen to podcasts instead now, and the best for interviews is Nerdist (the podcast from the guy who hosts the Talking Dead show on AMC). He interviews current and past celebs, and not just hookers, and strippers. Today while commuting i was listening to an interview with Christopher Lloyd. yesterday I listened to Mitch Hurwitz (Arrested Development), last week to Tom Cruise (and he doesn't sound so much like a douche now). Anthony Bourdain, Jaime King, Bill Nye, Clarke Gregg (the Avengers movie), Dave Attell, Christina Ricci, etc. This is where all the good, happening guests are talking now, and no commercials or subscription fees.
