Great ideas for my next reads!
Brian opens doors for books I might not have even considered before hearing his interviews. He asks great questions and makes the interviews quite fascinating!
Listen to Brian V!
Brian has a unique way of establishing an almost instantaneous rapport with each author. His questions are spot on and helps listeners get to know the author, the story, and oftentimes, the story behind the story.
This is the best way to "review" a book before you decide to pick one up at the library or the local bookstore.
Keep doing what you are doing Brian. We love it!
They're asking the questions no one else is and the authors seem to enjoy these interviews. Having said that, these guys are worth the listen
