Minter knows empathy

Learning about cognitive vs. affective empathy, burn out, the history of empathy and empathy in AI tech with Minter is a dream. Such an enriching podcast!

Left of center, in the best possible way

I’ve done a number of podcasts for my book, The Spare Room. Yet, speaking with Minter felt fresh because he approaches topics and prepares questions that are all a little left of center. Keeps the conversation interesting and flowing!

Interviewed by Minter

I was recently interviewed by Minter and he is wonderful at asking unusual questions and really getting you thinking about your business and how you can serve more people. I really enjoyed chatting with him.
