This podcast has great info and awesome guests

Let the guests speak

The guests are amazing, the show has great moments and intent but the host does not allow the guests to speak. Ideally, the host will start to focus more on interviewing the guests instead of turning the show towards the hosts’ story/history/experiences. Host is eloquent and a good speaker but I tune in to hear the guests. Thanks
