Amazing podcast - great interviews

Questlove is so engaging and really creates an environment where guests open up and provide unique insights into their careers. The guests chosen are so impressive and people who don’t normally open up to the media. Highly recommend!

Taking up space

You’re very much aware that it’s QL show - he talks a lot and over people and interrupts when people a speaking which is super annoying. He gets a thought when someone is speaking and interrupts them. He also had a tendency to ignore Liaya when she is asking a guest a question or on the rare occasion when she is allowed to speak, he answers the question on behalf of the guest, dismisses her, or asks he’s own question. All of this spoils the show and it’s only good when the guest are allowed to speak freely without QL constant interruptions.
