Super interesting podcast! ,

Such a fun podcast!

Jason is an awesome host and has such interesting guests from all different backgrounds which keeps this podcast super interesting! He is a great interviewer and I can’t tell if he has known his guests for 10 minutes or 10 years as there is a comfortability and ease with the guests that resonates with the listener. I love his podcasts and look forward to Wednesday mornings when his latest episode launches! Thank you Jason!
