Refreshing to randomly pull up a podcast and find exactly I want. Michael is a great interviewer. So special to hear him interview Terry Gross.

One of my top favorite interview podcasts

I absolutely LOVE this podcast! Michael Ian Black has a remarkable gift for interviewing and bringing out the true personalities of his guests. He is a wonderful combination of thoughtful, funny and incisive.

The sheer range of personalities and industries explored on this podcast is impressive. Michael conveys a genuine respect for his guests, while asking the questions everyone is dying to know about the guest's livelihood or story, and all the while, keeping the mood good-natured, lighthearted, and enjoyable.

I'm a giant fan of interview podcasts in general, and it's always fascinating to see how different interviewers draw their guests out. Some interviewers can have a very distractingly strong viewpoint; in a way, I think Michael Ian Black's more lightfooted (yet deep!) approach can be more difficult sometimes.

Sad that this podcast is on hiatus as Michael is truly one of the best interviewers around. Listen to the past episodes!!!

Absolutely brilliant!

Michael Ian Black is so witty and intuitive. He is one of the best interviewers I’ve ever heard on any podcasts/radio program.
I just found “How to Be Amazing” a few weeks ago and I’ve been listening to it every chance I get. It helps me through creative slumps and times when I want to give up.
