Theme Song?

Never listened to the podcast, yet. Only know ads for it from listening to Tapper or Cuomo, forget which.

Sounds like some good topics for a podcast.

What I really need to know is how to play this song without words over it and turn it up. Love that background music and want to play it on its own. Couldnt find on youtube.

Help me out!?

Phoenix, AZ loves you! ,

Eileen Fisher, what the what?!

I have listened to a ton of your shows, Poppy, but that happened with the Eileen Fisher interview?! Wow, she is so mono-toned and BORING to listen to!! She totally blew the interview. So painful to listen to, so I deleted that episode.

Please pick more charismatic people! Thank you!

One of the most informative podcasts available

I love this entire series (and not just because I am a fellow Minnesotan). I first began listening to the episodes during my daily walks and it quickly became one of my favorites. Poppy Harlow’s guests are varied and interesting to begin with, and Ms. Harlow’s obviously in-depth preparation and her friendly yet probing interview technique result in content that is both informative regarding the interviewee as well as thought provoking. I can’t recommend this series highly enough.
