The Guests! The Host! The Suit!

World class guests interviewed in long format by Lex. Lex is a Russian born American citizen and huge nerd. Honest and vulnerable with a friendly style. Great and interesting.

Lex do what you do fam

Some of us would love to get informed about what’s going on before we leave this earth 🌎.

CHENOVIKB ,

Makes long commutes enjoyable

Lex as one of several podcast hosts I listen to as I drive to work. I appreciate his calm curiosity, rational approach to interviews & fascinating people for many different areas of experience and life experience that he brings in to interview. Also, Lex has one of the least irritating voices to listen to out of many podcast hosts so 2-3 hrs with him is not only bearable but enjoyable.
