Whether through work or at play, I've had the good fortune of meeting some pretty prolific people. On 'I'm That', we have a chat about who they are, what they do, and why. It may be deep. Profound. Funny. Many times, all of the above. But it's always honest.

"When we got there, we still didn't understand the full picture. We didn't know that people got kidnapped to Gaza. We didn't know how many people got slaughtered. Meanwhile, I'm starting to get messages about friends of mine that were at the Nova Music Festival....unfortunately, those guys, three of them got slaughtered."
Dana Satterwhite, Creative Director
"There's no substitute for great idea. And I think great ideas are what, have and will continue to drive the ad industry and just innovation period."
Ronny Vance, President MyPart
“Most of the people I would work with were people bashing it out every day in their home studio....It's a constant, you know, drill and grill and it's such a great feeling when someone actually nails it. And it's like, holy s**t. This is just unbelievable. This piece of music - and you're part of it!”
Lisa Coleman, Musician
"The thing about music is it's something that always grows and that constantly can give me something new. That every time I go back to the piano and sit there and just open myself up, something new happens – every time. And I think that that can happen for the rest of my life. There's nothing like it. It's the most soothing, most invigorating thing - and it has promise. Always, I can always get better, I can always learn more, I can always write something new."
Shirley Halperin, Executive Editor of Music, Variety
"I was like, 'Hey, can I hit that?' And Snoop is like, 'You sure little girl?' This was probably the first time I got high in an interview and holy s**t, Snoop was just laughing at me...laughing at this little girl who came in from LA. It was embarrassing. But the story turned out great. Photoshoot turned out great. It's one of the highlights of my career. And I never smoked in the middle of an interview ever again."
Oonie Chase, Partner at IDEO
"Every single problem I work on, if you dig all the way down, there's a human problem somewhere nested in it. And so if you want to be a designer, and you want to practice design as a method of framing and problem solving, you have got to become adept at designing for humans – because at the end of the day, that's what you're doing."
Eitan is a great interviewer, giving his guests plenty of room to be themselves but also gently guiding the conversation. Specifically to the Eve Barlow episode, it was nice to see a bit more of Eve, usually it’s the cause that she lets lead. So appreciate Eitan doing that. Looking forward to more!
Thoughtful, thought-provoking, and conversational. I’m That...Fan!
Introspective, honest, and thought provoking. It’s the trifecta of podcasts. Highly recommend.
