Educating

I have listened to the first three podcasts and I am aware of both Joey’s public image and also his intellectual side and thirst for knowledge. But these podcasts have blown me away. A combination of Joey being eloquent and informed with a sense of reasoning and absolutely top draw guests who are all strong personalities which makes for a magical blend of informative conversation pushing around ideas of the highest calibre. Well done Joey another string to your ever increasing bow.

Became a bit ‘samey’

Started really well and Sean Dyche was an excellent guest. But over time the podcasts became a bit lethargic and it was clear that Joey knew all the participants well, almost too well. This meant there was little debate or conflict and discussion. Joey was a much better interviewer than I expected him to be, but there was too much tendency to move into theory and ‘look what I have learnt’ and ‘what a scholar of the mind I am’. Maybe that was the point, and maybe that’s why I lost a bit of interest.

Great listen

Wondering what I would get from this podcast like many will. Would Joey be out of his depth....?

But honestly a great listen, Joey comes across as very well educated and bounces well off his guests. He has a very wide range of knowledge in areas you don’t expect from an outside view.

Can’t recommend enough.
