Good subject for discussion
I like you podcasts and listen to them regularly. Occasionally you have guests who don’t seem credible. For example episode 172 it seems pretty obvious that the interviewee is fabricating parts of his financial developments. You pressed him a bit on that but didn’t go very far with the challenge. As a listener I hope you are committed to promoting truthful information and avoid becoming a platform for misinformation.
