Happy, honest, gave me a chuckle
Ken is a really great host. He takes the time to listen to his guests and seems to really make them feel comfortable. He is also knowledgeable in all things nerd himself which is awesome, and asks questions that I want asked. Love it, new subscriber here!
Great Guests, Humanizing Format
Plume interviews people he's interested in. I happen to be interested in a lot of the same people.
The free format "with no agenda" goes places structured interviews don't, and it's at those moments--when interviewees expect an edit--that lends the listener of this podcast a unique perspective on writers, comedians, & other celebrated individuals from the U.S. & UK.
Every single interview goes places no interview has gone before, and you learn so much more about the subjects than you ever thought possible. Ken knows how to push his interviews to new and exciting places every single time. A must listen!
