Calvintara ,

Such a fun and interesting listen!

Ok, first let me start off my saying, I am probably biased because if Jesse Carey had a podcast about paint drying I would listen religiously! I have been listening to his various podcasts throughout the years and he is honestly one of the best hosts and interviewers I have listened to. This podcast is no exception!

It is such a cool concept and such a fun listen! A lot of the people he interviews may not be familiar to you but if you give it a listen, you will be pleasantly surprised at how thoughtful his guest choices are and also how thoughtful the podcast is! And he’s also hilarious but this podcast shows a different, more profound insight to Jesse Carey’s mind. Thanks Jesse for continuing to make amazing content!

Highly recommend!!!!
