Olasky Interviews - Making Me A Better Steward of God’s Gift of Time
I have only listened to four of these podcast so far, but I am hooked. The subjects, exposure to people from different backgrounds with different experiences, even the interview process itself which allows significant insight into the individuals being interviewed. This is a perfect example of making the best use of technology for good. Well done!
Marvin Olasky chooses interesting people to talk to and tries to understand them and get out of the way and let them talk. Lots of commentary isn’t always a bad thing, but Olasky does a good job with giving just enough to follow the interviewee’s thought and show he’s listening while letting them keep the spotlight. He’s knowledgable about many things and doesn’t try to trap his interviewers or put words in their mouths. Very interesting and educational.
