How many Non White Guests on the show
I’m a loyal listener but I have recently become conscious of how there are only white guests on the show. Colour should not matter but when there is not fair representation, it does.
Barry is humble and genuinely interested in finding out information from guests. This is a rare quality. He makes interviews about guests and their achievements. A great podcast for anyone interested in business, investment and economics.
