Great, but

This is a promising show though the interviewer says Mm-hmmm or seems to lightly moan approval every 5-10 seconds which is really distracting. Please turn off mic when interviewee is speaking. TY

Wonderful

Rhys is a great host - I love his friendly demeanor and his voice is actually very pleasant to listen to. He finds fascinating people to interview and then asks them great questions. What else could you want?

His podcast is a signal in a world of distraction
