Life changing

Congrats on reaching 500 episodes! I’ve been listening to this show for almost a decade now and it has given me so much insight into things I didn’t even know could be interesting. Sports, well-being, education, environment - you name it, this podcast always uncovers a delightful, economic side of things.

Stephen is a master at asking the interesting, thought provoking questions, and does it in a way that disarms the interviewee even when the question could be taken as challenging or confrontational.

It’s also incredible how prepared he is for every single interview. I’m sure there is a whole team dedicated to research but the way Stephen presents it and guides the conversations (maybe it’s simply editing magic) is simply superb.

Fantastic!

First of all, thank you so much for presenting a brilliant podcast like this!
I am an English learner meanwhile have some sleeping issues because of the job.
But I have to say listening to this podcast at bed is really relaxing and helpful for me.
You speak clearly and wittily, and also the selected topic every time is very interesting!
Last but not least, hope this podcast could keep ROCKING in the future!
