Great Storyteller Great Interviewer

I discovered Cal through Tim Ferriss’s podcast. He told some great stories in a captivating way. What an amazing life he’s had but listening to him you’d think he’s just getting started. When I found out he had his own podcast I had to check it out! ... and I was not disappointed at all. Cal is great and so are the people he gets on the show! How could you not love the guy.
