Excellent show

Excellent interviews. I enjoy listening to my favorite architects get real. I have learned so much already listening to this podcast, and I discovered it a few months ago. Thank you!

Great podcast, audio needs work

Great podcast that I frequently listen to!

Please bump up that audio of your guests tho, it’s tough to hear them on the road.

Host needs to develop more

First, I will applaud Aaron for starting this podcast. I do enjoy hearing from the guests and learning about their history. My hope is Aaron will continue to develop as an interviewer. I find he often interrupts guests, and asks overly long questions. I would suggest omitting phrases such as, “ does that make sense” , “this is probably a stupid question” “blah blah blah” etc. hosting is a craft and I think Aaron can use some improvement which would make the show better.
