One of the best interview based podcasts out there

This man is a deeply knowledgeable and accomplished long-form interviewer. His guests span a wide spectrum of interest and he asks probing questions that are informed rather than intrusive. I enjoy the variety and was especially impressed by his conversations with Rod Argent, Bill Curbishley and Michael Connelly.

Don’t interrupt!

My god. The host has great guests, asks decent questions, but constantly interrupts the guests, and not just when they’re veering off on tangents. It’s maddening. Giles Martin begins to answer a question about his father not being able to find work and just as he begins to illustrate his point by telling a story about being on an airplane once — and the host cuts him off and poses another question. If one was to transcribe these podcasts, I have a feeling at least a third of all the content would be the host talking.

He gets to the point

Without a doubt.....one of the best interviewers I have ever listened to.
