Love the podcast!
I love Julian’s questions, guests and style! Great interviews; they are very insightful and educational. I really enjoyed the interview with Chris Hanson on time freedom vs financial freedom. I have been a listener of his podcast for a long time. Please have him on again. He had a lot of interesting nuggets of wisdom that may have passed over many listeners’ heads. It would be awesome to have him discuss those in more detail. I want to make sure I was hearing his subtext correctly! Thanks.
