Evan Ratliff is a genius interviewer

When Evan Ratliff is doing the interview, this podcast is sublime. He knows how to interview and draw out his guests into revealing interesting background information. When Max Linsky is in the interviewer seat he editorializes too much and tries to lead subjects down too many wrong roads and they spend a lot of wasted time trying to politely wave him off and get back on track. Max interjects himself too much into the interview while Evan skillfully keeps the guest in the truth-telling zone.

Amazing, helpful, interesting, challenging

This is my favorite podcast and I've even listened back through most of the episodes again. Thank you for continuing to put out excellent interviews.

Wow -- what a gift!

I just stumbled across this podcast and it is my great fortune! I now have lots of insightful and interesting interviews to catch up on. It's kept me sane during my long walks with my super slow senior dog in the neighborhood. I'm a software developer and reader, not a writer, and I find most of the guests to be quite compelling. I've learned a lot. Can't recommend this podcast more highly.
