One of my favorites

This is an excellent podcast. The questions posed by the host always push the presenter to expand on things they may or may not have presented. The topics are extremely interesting and you learn something in each podcast. It was hard listening to two arrogant guest recently but Luke’s empathy and understanding allowed me to listen till the end. Excellent
