BeckGrigg ,

I wish I’d discovered this podcast earlier.

Only found this at the start of 2021 and have spend the last couple of months catching up. Ultimately it’s the same set of questions asked to people of interest. That is 78 (so far) different sets of answers. Different peoples perceptions and opinions are fascinating and I believe PMcK brings out the best answers from them. It’s full of life tips and little snippets you can take away - the people you least expect blow you away- for me it was Michael Vaughan and Freya Ridings who really stood out, I don’t know who they are but I love their personalities.
So poignant during a lockdown and helped me to air on the side of positivity. I literally recommend it to anyone that will listen to me.

Same Questions throughout. Too scripted.

Really good guests with often similar answers to Paul’s set of scripted questions.
I find because of the repeated questions to each guest I got bored. Occasionally a big character would deviate after being asked a question which would be interesting because it was a much more natural dialogue & would have answered the oncoming question before it was asked, annoyingly Paul would still ask the question rather than naturally flow onto other things which often lead the guest to answer “as I said”........
Conversation is much more interesting when it evolves naturally rather than sticking to a script.

Very scripted, wooden, interesting at same time

McKenna is a surprisingly terrible interviewer, very wooden and he actually reads from scripted questions where you can clearly see the clumsy join. But the guests are good and interesting despite of McKenna’s style so 4 stars.
