Such a delight

The premise of this podcast is so refreshing. The interviews are so relaxed and engaging. I swear I could listen for hours and feel like I was sitting in the room, joining in the conversation. THANK YOU!

One of the best interviewers out there

Highly recommended — Craig’s conversations are always insightful, funny, interesting, and a source of positivity.

Now if only he would interview one/some/all of the Grand Tour/Top Gear trio (I suspect not given he’s a big fan, but one can hope).
