amrpod ,

Great show!

I've always enjoyed hearing Charlie as a guest on Stop Podcasting Yourself, and was exciteted to see that he has his own show. The episodes I've listened to have had genuine, searching, thoughtful conversations, with a good dose of self-depricating humor thown in for good measure. A very enjoyable listen.
