The out of the blue one off guests (Leonis, Al Michaels, Steve Kerr etc.) are also much better than the recurring commentators he has on (Lombardi, Schatz etc.).
Klosterman is probably my favourite, although his podcast appearances for some reason make me fearful that one day the Gladwell email sessions are going to make it into podcast form.
I just mean it's dumb because they really have no professional information at all to give out. It seems so amateurish that they are even on there.
I also <3 Klosterman.
Thinking about it, I think I just enjoy the podcasts when it seems like they are just dudes talking on the phone. Guys like Schatz, Lombardi, Millman all just seem like he called them for a podcast. Where as Klosterman, JackO, House, the NBA podcasts(Stein, etc) seem like they could legitimately be having this conversation regardless of whether it is recorded or not.
