Love it!

Paul, the podcast is great, has a nice variety of guests from all across the board. I’d give you five stars, but you’ve gotta nail down the audio quality. I’ve listened to every episode, some aren’t so bad, but others....eek! It sounds like you are washing the dishes or throwing coins into a huge metal vat or something while your guests are talking. Other than that, love it, enjoy your humor & perspective on things.

Great Conversations

I just discovered these delightful gems that Paul puts out there. His style is relaxed and conversational, with a great mix of humor, kindness, and intelligence. His guests run the gamut, and all bring their life experiences with them and share openly, and Paul is at once a good interviewer and a wide-eyed kid who is amazed at his good fortune at having the chance to meet his guests. Keep up the good work!
