Immediately in love with this podcast
I've only just found this podcast when one of the recent guests tweeted about his episode being released. I was just going to listen to his episode, but one glance through the titles of the previous episodes and I knew I had to listen to them all. Quickly hit "subscribe" on my podcatcher and started binging on the episodes. Only about half through them so far, but loving every minute of it. The guests' passion for their topics comes through in shining ways and Julie is a wonderful interviewer that helps bring their passion out of them. 5 glowing stars and a strong "Must listen!" from me :)
