Kgartner ,

Always Enjoyable

At first I didn’t like Bill Simmons. I thought he was annoying when he was doing basketball analysis for ESPN. But after listening to many of his pods. Bill’s interview skill have really shined. The question he ask the people he interviews shows he is trying to understand who they are as a person. Bill is the podfather!!!
