Complex made simple

The deep dive takes seemingly complex ideas, thoughts, phenomena; and through thoughtful conversation with poignant guests make them digestible for the layperson.

The discussion on DJing as an art form I especially enjoyed. I really thought DJing was as simple as putting on a playlist from streaming service du jour. I could not have been more wrong.

That is the beauty of Phil’s podcast. His preparation and uncanny ability to connect brings it all together for me and I’m sure it will do the same for you.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
