Brilliant!

I heard about the podcast featuring Grote so I listened to it. It was compelling to say the least. Laurence has a natural, welcoming interviewing style. He is not the star of the show but he brings the best from the star he interviews. I wonder if he really knows how good he is. The Joe Cowley podcast actually brought me to tears. This podcast is a rare gem. I wish Laurence all the best with it. He is developing something special.

Awesome

I don’t even like basketball that much but Rick Camp is awesome, and it is great that you are giving him a platform.

Stephen Bardo interview was your best yet. Did not want it to end!
