  1. As long as Sean doesn’t keep repeating himself and talking over people before they can finish a sentence, he should do fine. I generally like his subject matters and guests.I would like to see and hear more diversity on subjects and follow ups with past ones. Also, at least one subject a night on what is working in America.
