Fascinating

Perfect for anyone in sales or interested in reading people. Wish it was updated more often, but when it is, I listen immediately. It’s that good.

Great listen!

I just finished the recent podcast with Benjamin Moots and found it to be enjoyable and interesting. Zachary asks excellent questions and keeps the conversation focused and on point. I’m looking forward to diving into the back episodes as well as listening to the new ones as they come out.
