Interesting and Inspiring

I really enjoyed this interview, Jay came across as a quiet, calm, methodical professional kind of guy, it was interesting to hear his stories and motivation.
I thought James interview technique worked well it was kind of like 2 fellas having a chat in a boozer.
Future guests:
Alan Hinkes
Nicky Spinks
Jasmine Paris
Joss Naylor
Scott Jurek
All of whom are very humble but awesome people.
