Interesting Thought Provoking Topics

I love the deep dive and discussion around important topics but while trying to listen to episode 3 I became overwhelming annoyed by the constant interuptions from the interviewer. If those were edited out this would be near perfect.

Interviewer Needs Help

Topics and experts presented on the podcast are outstanding. But either Daniel or Adam really need to take some interviewing lessons from Malcolm. PLEASE, pretty please, stop saying “yes,” “hum,” “mm-hmm” over the interviewee. It makes it difficult to listen to. This is not The Daily (Michael is ok with his “hmm”’s). I’ll change to 5 stars if/when I hear marked improvement. Thanks!

Great podcast but the host has to stop interrupting!!

This podcast is great- except for the rapid fire “right, right, yep, uh huh, right right” interrupting by the host. It’s incredibly distracting and even though I appreciate that he does it with enthusiasm, it prevents what the interviewee is communicating to sink in.
