Worldly podcast

Smashes it with every guest on ever show.

Giorgio_ne ,

Are you getting bored Lex?

I sense a certain amount of boredom creeping in Lex’s voice and style of questioning.
It feels as if Lex is wants to influence the interview with his own thoughts rather than letting the guest speak.
Is this caused by boredom or perhaps by Lex being influenced by more assertive and provoking interviewing styles that we see so often these days?

Alex Map ,

Brilliant

Amazing podcast! Super informative and extremely entertaining.
