A great listen!

I’ve only listened to part of one episode and I already thoroughly enjoy the premise of this podcast. The chemistry of the hosts, the insights of the guests, and the strong editing all come together into a great listening experience.

Hey, I know these people!

I started to listen to Know Normal People because a few of the folks being interviewed are friends of mine, and I am now hooked to the podcast, and quickly making my way through the rest of the archives! I live in Billings, and so hope to run into the Hennings in person! They are delightfully interesting and inviting hosts! I love the premise of this podcast, and am loving getting to know the people they invite on.

Stephen G Henning ,

It’s just true!

What! A host rating his own show?? Hey it’s fine. Just trying to spread the love. Doing this project has taught me more about our thesis than I originally even thought possible. Ask normal people questions about their lives. You will NEVER regret it. “The only normal people you know are the ones you don’t know very well.”
