Customer Reviews

Phil Russ ,

An interview gem

Pat has an outlook on everything and this discussion brings it all out. So many times I wanted to stop the podcast and write down something that he has said.

He is also very adept at pointing the listener to explore other avenues, by referring to other authors and thinkers.

The interviewer is very good at allowing him enough time to fully pass on his ideas, and her questions draw him out. He is clearly fully engaged in the process and the combination makes compulsive listening.

If you care about society and where we’re heading then listen to this podcast.

It’s actually the sort of thing you could listen to more than once, and I fully expect that I will return to it. I really am very excited about the prospect of more similar podcasts to follow.
