Funny and Profound

Catie takes a deceptively light-hearted approach with her guests--these interviews are fun, and funny, until they unexpectedly and poignantly reveal little gems of wisdom from both interviewer and interviewee. Catie finds uniformly interesting people to talk to, and exposes sides of well-known personalites you didn't realize were there. A great, unique approach makes this well worth adding to your podcast rotation!!
