Hey, we're hacking everyone else. How about Sean as an interviewer/MC?

Oh, sarcasm. I get it now. She has really nice hair, though.

LOL, if Nora ignored him it was because he was too busy basking in her awesome intellect to notice.

Good to know, but he still seems laid back, genial and detached from directing the discussion in one way or another. He's a good host.

Sean is a terrific host. But the format here was a bit different than a free-ranging conversation. Sean asked us to suggest questions to him. So it's often the presenter's own questions he's teeing up, rather than Sean's own as it would be on his Underground Wellness show.

Yo! What???s Up, Y???all!

I don't think there's anyone in the world that doesn't like him. His omega3 status must be amazing too, he's always in a good mood :)

I like how he's stayed mostly neutral to the presenters. He cracked a bit with Matt Stone, which was nice to hear, because so did I.

this is more of a general comment about him as a podcaster, but i think he is the best podcaster out there. i like the way he stays very humble and seems to be learning from his guests right along with the rest of us. some of the other podcasters come across as if they already know everything thier guests are saying and it seems like such a turn off to me. i wonder if the guests ever feel offended or wonder why they were even invited on the show if the host is already such an "expert" - anyway just an observation on what sets Sean apart. ...i also think he is cute :)

I like him. Balanced & patient. Good questions, (even though sometimes he gets ignored by the presenter!)

Of course he did great as an interviewer, he kept the format appropriate as he sort of stayed out of the way and let the interviewees really unpack what they had to say; he just relayed the right questions to get a snapshot of where everyone is at with the issues of the day. Sean has lots of personality himself but it wasn't to the detriment of any of the interviews I heard.

It's hard not to gush on about Sean ; ) I first got into his youtube videos a couple of years ago before I heard about paleo, he really got me on the whole foods kick and reconsider what I previously thought were healthy dietary choices because everyone else said so. Sean has a way of communicating information that is genuine. His enthusiasm is contagious, and that's got to come from a history of how he's worked with lots of people up close and personal over his career.

What is also great is his openness to evolve in his understanding. He was hip on the metabolic typing diet back when I was first listening to him, but the more I read about it things just didn't add up for me. And eventually I guess not for him either as he took a turn to more sensible approaches to dietary guidelines, and I believe Robb Wolf's book especially made an big impact on where he's at today.

I've also seen how he can be extreeeemely cool and collected under attack. The flak for Protandim, or especially his response to the 30 banana guy hit piece was for me a big lesson in cortisol management ; )

He also deserves respect for putting together something like the Summit - a self conscious arrangement of variegated perspectives/plans within the paleosphere. This was obviously intended to push people to consider things outside their "knowns" and keep a good kind of dialogue going for eventual improvement.

Yo, what's up y'all!!! Sean always gives me a chuckle or makes me smile. He is my favorite Internet media personality. He seems genuine, he brings a lot to the table as an MC, he doesn't have a rigid or dogmatic approach to topics he covers, and he's excited about what he presents. When the presenter is excited to learn, it gets me excited to learn. He doesn't talk TO us, he seems to more talk WITH us. Just my take...

Sean Croxton is wicked. I'm into raw food but I still like stance on learning and sharing information without forcing it on you.
