Yeah, that's what I hear too.  When you have a group of people sitting around discussing politics, and everyone is agreeing with each other, that can spell, umm, boredom.  Conflict is what I believe makes the listening compelling.  Limbaugh has a way of presenting both sides (well, his own slant on the liberal side) and then stating his case... this makes listening more interesting. The other thing I've noticed was that they leave the same caller on for long periods of time.  This might be due to the fact that no one is calling, and so by default, people just get left on, but sounds a bit bush-league to me.
