Thank you

Thank you for interviewing such an awesome guess. I do have a little constructive criticism though. Let your guests talk more you talk a little too much and don’t give your guest the opportunity to respond. sometimes it’s hard to listen to your podcast because of that. Again thank you for this podcast I hope this helps.
