Listen

John Noltner asks the most interesting questions, and then - unlike many interviewers who want to insert an agenda or hear themselves pontificate so people know how smart they are - he listens. Lack of ego leads to peace, which is why John is a leader in peace. He does the work, he creates art out of people’s lives, and he lets them and their stories shine.

Interesting points of view

John does a good job of setting up the questions and then allows the guest to talk. The conversation flows and there are some wonderful connections made. Thoughtful podcast in this new era.
