The man! And what a long awaited podcast

One of the most niche podcasts out and I'm so glad I stumbled upon it - Scott is like a Tim Ferris of the Bass world. And so thankful that he's sharing the experience of the most amazing bass players alive.

Great but...

The interviews with Scott are generally very good but the other guy is, sadly, not a good interviewer, couldn’t listen to more than a couple of minutes into his podcasts. Pity he was allowed to do 50 interviews. Scott has developed his interview ability over time, e.g. not talking over the top of the interviewee so much. Overall though an excellent product
