  1. It’s frustrating that you don’t respond to anything the guest says. After the guest speaks you say, “yea.. yea.. sure… right… interesting..” then simply ask the next question on your list. A good host actually engages with his guest, expands on the responses, challneges them. Have an actual discussion. It’s clear you just have a list of questions and you’re not even paying attention to what the guest says.
