He says lots of things I disagree with, but he is a terrific radio personality. Much, much better and more interesting than most broadcasters on the stations which carry his program. I don't live near any stations which carry his show anymore, though.
I noticed the pre-recorded segments as well, it usually seems to be an interview. Sometimes it sounds like a different person does the interview and asks the questions, then they edit in Savage's voice later. Still, it is better than some of George's questions, because actual thought and effort went into it, edited and pre-recorded though it may be.
