True Fan & Great Interviewer

Vish is all of the above!

Excellent podcast

Wonderfully interesting podcast. The host has immense knowledge and a great sense of humor.

I really want to like it

Vish and I seem to have very similar taste, that’s why it’s hard for me to write this review. I have listened to dozens of episodes and am still appalled at the hosts poor interviewing skills. Vish if you are reading this you need to get your act together. Artists are not here to interview you! Vish constantly makes interviews so awkward by bringing up unrelated things about himself. I genuinely want this to be constructive because the guests are incredible, but I’m starting to doubt that Vish has any self awareness.
