A great listen even if you’re not in the creative industries

This podcast really surprised me - I don't think of myself as a creative so wasn't sure what to expect. But Chris is a fantastic host; he asks great questions with a balance of humour and inquisitive nature and seems to really understand his guests.

There are so many valuable ideas and takeaways during these conversations that can be applied broadly to lots of different careers and life in general. Very inspiring and well worth a listen.

IT’S JUST TOO GOOD

My guy Chris is a natural. You can feel the comfort the guests feel from the start, which is something some interviewers struggle to relay across the internet. Fascinating conversations with a lot of unique points you can’t find elsewhere. Overall, top job Chris, nice one 🙏🏼
