Amazing conversations

I just love listening to Debbie Millman's interviews. Her guests are amazing people, and she does so much research to find out interesting and often odd details about them, which often surprises them and draws them out in unexpected ways. The conversations are filled with compassion and fun, but also a wonderful sense of always striving for the best in people and in ourselves.
