Adam is a master interviewer

Always an excellent podcast that is both interesting and hilarious. Many of the guests are unknown to me as an American, but I always come away having learned a lot and laughing. Adam excels at interviewing-he manages to extract interesting information and connect without asking rote interview questions. It’s quite remarkable. Most of all the podcast is so funny, especially when Tash is on! So glad to see that’s she’s back for her biannual appearance. Other favorite episodes/bits include: “12 lads” with Joe Lycett, “go to work on an egg,” and anything with Romesh Ranganathan. Shoutout to Rosie from another greyhound owner/sighthound lover. Thanks Adam!

Simply perfect

A great combination of silliness and seriousness. A great array of different types of guest. Some reminiscing, some cutting edge. Irreverent and poignant.
Hey, even my wife (my wife) had enjoyed listening to some!
