An eloquent wonk that guides a wonderful conversation.

I feel so lucky to have Full Disclosure based here in Richmond. But it’s not completely Richmond centric, Roben brings all of his worldly experiences to the table. The catalog of podcasts are deep. It ranges from James Beard award winning chefs, to hard nosed journalists talking about their latest coverage. Roben can hang well with any guest. Full Disclosure is hands down my favorite long form podcast. #arbitrage.
