Customer Reviews

Aaron Fischman ,

Creative Idea Executed Well

Judging by the list of interview guests who have appeared on my podcast, pretty much everyone does have their own show. Jake’s narrative format, however, brilliantly stands out among the rest, given its impeccable storytelling, seamless editing and emotion-evoking sound effects. He also excels at introducing characters and mixing in quotes. Listen to another predictable show with hosts debating/interviewing guests or enjoy a well crafted story? I’ll choose the latter.
