A Podcast For Our Time

This is certainly a podcast! Nik is a personality born for the medium and my favorite of his guests, Jorge Silva, was a delightful! If only there was another podcast where I could just hear the two of them banter at length. Five stars.

This podcast is so great!

Nik is an incredible host who, with immense thoughtfulness, humor, and curiosity, sparks engaging conversations with all of the amazing people he brings into the show. Highly recommend!
