easy to see why it’s called “Finding Genius”

The host has some excellent guests, and the conversations are super engaging. The topics vary widely, making it all the more impressive that Richard is able to keep up and ask intriguing questions for guest response. Richard engages insightful conversations across the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, business, etc.

I served as a guest and was pleased with the conversation. I’m certainly not a genius, but other guests can make that claim. Follow this podcast! You won’t be disappointed.
