Customer ReviewsSee All
Great “interviewer question askers”
In addition to being funny and relevant these guys ask great questions of the wide variety of guests on their shows. I listen to a lot of podcasts and nothing is more frustrating than when the interviewer doesn’t drill down on answers by the interviewer or ask the right questions.
These guys nail it on interacting with guests.
The story about the editable’s at the pool party was fall down funny and told in a way in which I felt like I was there
Keep up the great work fellas!
Practical knowledge & humor
