Like eavesdropping on...
Ricardo’s disarming approach to interviewing opens up his guests. It doesn’t even feel like an interview but rather a conversation between two friends that you’re eavesdropping on.
Thoughtful and Inspiring
Great access to so many inspiring people from mixed and varied industries, countries, genders and outlooks.
Wonderful and inspiring
This is a thoughtful approach to innovator’s stories, canvassing both their successes, and failures, and how they are both explicably interlinked. Ricardo is a sensitive and intelligent interviewer, and asks compelling and interesting questions of his guests that really guide you to the essence and heart of the guest’s life journey, interests, and innovations.
Every podcast has been wonderful, and interesting. I have either learnt something new, been utterly inspired by Ricardo’s insightful questions, and/or the exquisite emotional and intellectual engagement between Riccardo and the guest. More often all three!
Ricardo has crafted a podcast broadly applicable to anyone interested in getting to the heart of how to build a more meaningful professional and personal life. Highly recommend!
