I've been meaning to do a formal introductory post for this blog almost since I started off a month or so ago.

You should check it out, because he is an amazing interviewer. If you thought Barbara Walters was the only blonde, Jew in mascara capable of extracting deeply held personal secrets, well, you haven't met Jeff.
