Jim Capron ,

A truly interesting podcast!

The Interesting Podcast lives up to its name, because with every episode I listen to, I either learn something new or see something from a different perspective. Brian brings an incredible amount of enthusiasm and energy to the show, but is still able to make the interviews seem like a natural conversation. I really like the guests he's had on thus far and I can't wait to see what's in store for this show in the future!

AudioConsumer ,

Oh yeah...there you go

The host says “oh yeah...there you go.” way too much, it was distracting.

DoctorAeroson ,

Wow!

I just got to listen to an interview from a producer who works really close to Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk! What an interesting and fun conversation!
