Invigorating

Entertaining, informative, relatable

So far the guests Leo has had on have all been varied and super interesting to listen to. Leo asks great questions that lead the guests into stories about their lives and career choices. I think it’s a talent to create a list of questions that leads the guests into separate stories and pieces of their lives. I also appreciate the candor and honesty of both Leo and the guests hes had on. Makes it all very relatable and easy to listen to.

Asks all the right questions

Great variety of guests and asks all the right questions that I want to know and didn’t even know I wanted to know. Leo drops so many nuggets of knowledge and is super relatable to millennials. The journal prompt in the newsletter is a great addition to the podcast as well.
