What a delicious surprise

Alec - you are talented, warm and clever. And your guests are, too. Love this podcast.

Moby

I really enjoyed the interview and found him very compassionate. It is so true your childhood follows you for life. I’m glad he’s sober

Curious

On 14:19 and 14:31 Moby mentions having been sexually abused. I am very surprised how quickly Alec moved on with next question. It's such a profound and hurting and honest statement done so publicly by Moby and Alec ignoring it all together stunned me. He moved on by asking him what his mother was doing during the day 'did she work'. Weird. I wish there was more empathy.
