Great Storyteller

Bimma is an incredible story teller who knows how to get the nuggets of information out of the people he’s interviewing to put a full story together about someone’s life and career. Love that this serves as way to see how other folks in the industry did it.

No interruptions

Bima has great timing. He fully allows guests to go in depth with their personal experiences. He is an excellent listener and always puts his guests at ease.

Claima; thoughtful storytelling

A friend and colleague was interviewed introducing me to Claima Stories with Bimma. After listening to her interview (which flowed so well that I was shocked I’d been listening for an hour) I started making my way through other interviews. Very impressed, easy listening with great storytelling. Highly recommend!
