For me, the problem is that the show has become overedited and way too slick. Krista has maybe two or three exchanges with the guest, then you break away with yet another repetition of who the guest is and what he or she has written (once at the beginning of the show is enough!) or a quote from another part of the interview or a reading or some music. A little of this might be okay, but it seems like everytime you get some momentum going, some movement in an interesting direction, there's an interruption, and when you pick up, you're on another topic. I think this is where focus gets lost.
