Dar Horn ,

A great interviewer

This is one of my favorite shooting podcasts. Arik is a gifted interviewer with the knack of getting into the mind of the guest. He has a rare ability to ask leading questions that reveal insightful answers. More importantly, Arik is one of the rare podcasters, who actually seems to care about the answers, and allows guests to actually talk.

Great Host / Great Show

Fun and interesting interviews! I’ve been trying to be better about supporting good podcasts by leaving positive reviews. As I’ve been doing this I can’t help but notice people that admittedly have enjoyed many episodes but then leave a negative review about a particular episode. These are garbage people. Podcasts are FREE entertainment. We need to support guys like Arik who put out a fantastic show with great guests. It’s a lot of work!
