So happy I subscribe to this podcast.

I can’t stop listening

Good good good,
I cannot find anything more attractive so far.
Different topics, different ideas, different guests, and all of them fit to my view, comprehension, and hunger for new information. Information that I understand, I can digest and my brain takes without stress. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this.

Insightful, entertaining and actionable 🙌

I am consistently bowled over by the brilliant advice and inspiring conversations that Jon & Chris have with their guests. It feels like they're always willing to stand behind conversations that seem challenging to have (or for most of us to get our heads around without help!). Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Smart People Podcast if you want the knowledge AND ideas to explore your own personal / professional evolution & development (and reach your overall goals as a result)!
