He is very predictable with his questions. With any given guest, there could be a number of interesting questions to ask but none of them get asked. He seems to have a worksheet of the same questions in front of him.

Topic: Fukushima
George: "What is angels?"

Topic: Ebola
George: "Are they angels now?"

Topic: Isis
George: "Could it be angels?"

Topic: Roswell
George: "Were they angels?"

Topic: Angels
George: "Did somebody say ANGELS?"

George Noory is not Art Bell. A lot of people miss Art Bell. Both are good show hosts.

Never understood why people hate the guy. He is the opposite of Bill o'rielly or sean hannity.
Positive and classy(rare nowadays)to callers even when he doesn't agree with them.

Mainstream corporate news would just cut your microphone,talk over you, or edit you away etc.
His UFO content is good and he makes the show about the guest not him.

John Wells is awesome. Funny as hell.

Another reason to hate Noory: In reaction to the Charlie Hebdo assassinations, George said (and repeated a few times) that nothing could justify the 12 murders, but on the other hand the cartoonists brought it on themselves by knowingly provoking devout Islamists.

He doesn't get it.

George Noorey is George Noorey. The guy that interrupts his guest with questions they just answered. The guy that is more interested in reading his texts and tweets for questions rather than actually listening to his guests, much less taking the time to read their books.

He never calls any of his guests on obvious BS. That's not an interview...that's pandering!


Which is what C2C is now....just a stupid show to hang advertising on pandering to the survivalist crowd. Lame, lame ads selling overpriced dried beans and rice and wind up radios etc.

I think C2C just got to big and now is 'told' what it can and can not discuss. Corporate control.

At least that's what John Wells thinks. I prefer caravan to midnight now. Wells always was my favorite host, then Art.

I personally like George, he seems to be a nice guy and can handle anybody's calls, and the guests.

I like George Noory, he seems like a nice guy. Hes easy to listen to and allows the guests to speak, no matter how crazy they sometimes seem. My problem is with the C2C show. WAY TO MANY COMMERCIALS and LOUD music. The music they play when coming back from or going to commercials is always so much louder than the interview portion of the show and to long. Cut the music time in half and lets have more interview time.

I've thought about subscribing for years. Is it commercial free?

I think it is commercial free. Plus it's kinda expensive too if your'e on a budget of course. You still have to listen to the loud music (which is usually some kind of Peruvian flute playing) but i believe you may hear a commercial or two. I just stopped subscribing after a while. George is too busy talking about P90X

Yes, it's commercial free.

You can either listen to it with either Windows Player or their own Coast Player which comes complete with music or you can listen to or download the MP3's which is the talking portion of the show only that doesn't have the music.

It seems like to me that he doesn't even pay attention to the guest a good 80% of the time.

They remember Art Bell?

have you noticed how George noory has been "interviewing" Dr Joel Wallach what seems like every 2 weeks for the past few months? it's all to sell those vitamin paks, people. it's like a 2 hour infomercial every time. i'm almost positive George gets a cut of that action. why else would he have the same freaking guest on so damned often?

and with his live shows just so he can feel important and have an audience to live out his failed dreams of being a singer, and now his paranormal dating service with ads that are so obviously designed to be misleading about cost ("totally free to join!..." however, if you actually find someone u want to date, "simply use the coupon code" ). George Noory is seemingly a whore for the gobs of cash he is working industriously to produce. i wouldn't mind so much if he could conduct a decent interview but he's so so bad. obviously just greedy and commercial and still validation-starved. you can almost hear him wince every time a caller mentions Art Bell, as he bites his tongue. you know he just wants to let the F-bombs fly but he has been given the advice to say nothing at all if he has nothing nice to say, haha.

George Noory is about as boring and inept a host as you could hope to float on a show as large as Coast to Coast was when he inherited it. Of course, he has lost tons of listeners since the Art Bell days which is why he's trying to make up for it in spades with all his different projects.

seriously, most commentary he gives during interviews is just parroting whatever he thinks the guest is about to say. with George, it always seems a race to see if he can finish his guest's sentences first, so he can look "smart". it's always so awkward. or he injects some stupid 5-year old level joke or pun that just totally interrupts the guest's flow of thoughts (they often seem annoyed) and really detracts from the overall integrity of the interview. these stupid trivial comments and unfunny jokes usually somehow point back to something about himself. ah, his fake humility at times belies a penchant for self-hype.

and the way he cuts callers off after their initial question and then doesn't make sure the guest actually answers the caller's question. it's his job to do that since the caller is no longer there to do it for themselves. he acts like all his listeners are like family and part of the show but he stifles any dialogue by cutting the line and then pretends to the guest, when the guest goes to clarify things with the caller, that the guest must have somehow "gotten" cut off or hung up willingly. George shows his level of respect to callers through his actions. he uses them for the question but will not let them participate in the spirit of friendly discourse.

but many times the guest just totally misses answering the original question, or says something that just begs further prodding, and yet George is oblivious and lets golden opportunities for learning real information of substance pass by unnoticed by him, and we are left yelling at the radio as to why George is not asking the obvious questions that we all now want to know. it's like he's got this list of questions in front of him that he's afraid to deviate from because he can't think, off-script. so he goes on autopilot. or many times, if it seems like George is just not interested in a specific topic that makes its way into the conversation (like short-wave radio, perhaps) he will totally neglect any spur-of-the-moment obvious line of questioning. i am not particularly into ham radio but sometimes when any type of question /answer sequence comes up, there are just naturally some questions that beg to be asked. whatever answer the guest gives, George barely even listens to what is said before moving on. it's almost as if he's too busy practicing in his head how to ask the next question without goofing up. i guess that's somewhat necessary for someone known for pronunciation blunders like him.

lately, though, i've noticed callers taking care of callers. really, they're probably just all on the same page with George's blunders. just last night was another big show on protecting the power grid (6/8/15) and there was a classic case of a caller asking a question (about how to protect electronics from pulse activity) with the guest answering a totally different question, and George bumbling his way to the next question. well, a bit later, a subsequent caller harkened back to the previous question, in fact pointing out that the guest had not answered the question. again, the guest gave a severely superficial answer, but of course the second caller could not inquire further, as George had cut the line already, and George again went onto the next caller. well, a little bit later, YET ANOTHER CALLER pleaded on the fact that the answer was still incomplete. in the end, though, George won out. The guest gave a half-hearted answer and sadly it was never fully explained--George not asking even one clarification prompt to get the guy to answer the damned question properly. oy, this guy's killing me! it's almost comical, if it wasn't so damned annoying.

I dont hate him, I used ot listen to him as a teenager (Im 26 now)

I guess I dont anymore because his show is ridiculous. He agrees with and proliferates (not sure if thats the word im looking for) the ideals of 99% of his guests. This is a problem because many of his guests have conflicting conspiracies, explanations, intel and scenarios and he acts like he doesnt know.

I get that, that is how he has to be, its how the show works....

But I wish it didnt operate that way. I wish he could call Bull**** on the stuff he thinks is bull**** and agree with what he thinks is legitimately real. Its too loose

Dont get me wrong, I love many of his guests and all the topics really.. its just.. theres some things that are just insanely ridiculous.. and people who go on that are clearly dellusional and he feeds in to it... when he knows damn well they are lying

"And off they go!"

"When they come for your guns you better use 'em, cause that's the only chance you'll get."(I wonder how well that would have worked out for the Boston residents after the marathon bombing. Probably not so well.)

"Ohhp! They got him! Every time we talk about something controversial, something happens and we lose the guest."

I don't hate George, per se. Hate is such a strong word. Disappointed, for sure. A little resentment, perhaps, when I hear those Ube-ahem-ridesharing ads he does now, tanking my industry in favor of a faceless multinational megacorporation. But I digress.

I agree with the other posters' comments about the poor interviewing form. He never seems to ask the right questions, doesn't challenge his guests enough, or much at all really. Too agreeable, as others have said. The topic and guest selection seems to have suffered considerably as well. He often covers a topic and seems to dance around the important aspects of it. I'm like "go left! You've gotta go left here!" And they turn right every frickin time. Not sure if he's been muzzled or if it's just poor form. Disappointing either way, though.

He does seem to be a bit of an ad whore, in general. I figured the show was really going downhill when I started hearing pharmaceutical ads on their in house advertising. When they canned John B with hardly a word about it, that seemed to indicate a drop in quality as well. He cuts callers off, but sometimes does a little better with the callers than Art did. I did prefer the unscreened format, though.

Loved John B Wells! I catch Caravan To Midnight on YT sometimes. I hope he can make his way back into broadcast radio one of these days. John is not afraid to say what's on his mind, not afraid to question the establishment, and I like it! Great interviewing style, good questions, good topics. He digresses a little too much every now and then, but it's always a good digression, so it's hard to hold that against him. He usually wraps it around back into the topic fairly well too, so not a big deal really.

I liked Art, though I often found myself wishing he would turn left on an interview when he turned right. Great jock, though. I'd like to see him back on the air too.

Like George Knapp, like Saret too. Knapp makes it sound so easy, and tends to nail it, whatever it may be that he's dealing with. Simone, Gar, meh.

I really liked Ian Punnett(ferret to the ferretless!), although it seemed like he was unpopular with the listeners. A little rough on the callers at times(John, John, John, John, John!), and the topic selection sometimes left me wanting, but he had an insightful interviewing style that I personally considered to be top notch. He'd get to thinking on topics and ask questions that often seemed to bring out the best in his guests, and so I must love him for his excellent approach to the medium.

I also like listening to Clive Lewis, the Ground Zero guy. A little ranty at times, but you usually like where he goes with it, so you don't mind too much because it's still pretty entertaining. He winds up getting a little profound in the middle of rantsville every now and then, too. Not afraid to serve up the doom porn, either, so I can appreciate that as well.

Love John B. Wells, though. I hope he does well, because he's one of the best (if not the best) in the game, in my opinion. I really would like to hear more of him, and more often.

I like hosts that actually know what they are talking about.

John B Wells(John is awesome.One of the few people that talk with clever double meanings in a cool smart way. You have to listen to what he's saying sometimes. He's not like most radio hosts. He can play with words in a cool interesting way. No one really does that.)

Clyde Lewis - UFOs,Conspiracies,paranormal(He's awesome. The whole show is like fine wine for the paranormal,best intro theme on radio)

George Knapp - UFOs,Cryptids,History(really knows what he's talking about and actually reads the guest's book.Blew my mind on his mafia knowledge. I am convinced he comes from an alternate universe where normal reporters research the UFOs,Cryptids and the paranormal as a serious topic.)

Connie Willis - Paranormal(actually goes out in the field to do research,knows what she is talking about, and really cares about the subject. She asks questions that matter to the guests not the meaningless filler questions.)

Dave Schreider - Paranormal,Crime (best bumper music in the history of radio, another radio host that actually did field research and knows what they are talking about. Really good interviewer that ask relevant questions...because he knows the subject and knows what question is a good question)

Richard Syrett -Paranormal, Conspiracies(VERY humble human being.Anything Richard does on conspiracies is gold. Really knows what he's talking about. Stay awhile...my friends)

Alex Jones -Conspiracy,alternative news(When you research the declassified military manuals/declassified intelligence manuals/documents/articles/white papers/memos/directives/academic journals/books/quotes/prominent news paper articles/treaties/laws/global initiatives etc that Alex Jones presents to you , you will never look at the world the same way again.)
