Great insight

Loved how easily sam got Pete to open up about his life, kinda wish I was a childhood thief if I knew it would be followed with that much success. Loved it keep em coming 👍

Love the show, but a 1:7 ratio of women to men interviewees is pretty poor.

It's nice to know I'm not alone. Great content, very easy to listen to!
