Great Topics and Guests, Sina talks too much

Love the topics and guests, and Chelsea does an excellent job hosting and interviewing by asking clear, concise questions and letting the guest answer as they see fit. This allows the listener to hear the opinions and glean wisdom from the expert.

Sina, however, is often interjecting his own opinion as he asks a question then gives several of his own seemingly off-the-cuff possible responses to the interviewer which are typically rejected in favor of what the guest wants to talk about anyways. I would argue your listeners are here for the topics and guests, not to hear the the interviewer’s knowledge and opinion about those topics. Take some notes from Chelsea’s interviews: keep the questions succinct, clear, and direct to let the guest talk.

Other than that critique, love the Loopcast, and I hope to keep listening for years to come.

Great show

An excellent, thoughtful podcast on security and geopolitical issues. The host clearly knows her stuff and asks many of the same questions that I have myself. I will definitely be subscribing and am looking forward to hearing more.

On Loopcast

I thoroughly enjoyed my time as a guest on the Loopcast. Probing and polite, the host gave me the room to breathe and explore some topics that deviate greatly from conventional wisdom. A killer show, and highly recommended.
