ky_sjoman ,

Amazing host, and natural dialogue!

Love this podcast! Andy has the ability to bring a real and rawness out of the athletes and artist he speaks with. Gain so much insight to different industries and what drives people to success, and the trials, failures they go through and how that effected their paths. Relatable and inspiring!
