Fun, in-depth, conversational

"The Pipeline" popped up as a related recommendation.

Not sure what I expected, but decided to give it a shot after seeing Tim Ferriss' name on the list. After listening to both Ferriss and Topolsky shows, I'm hooked. It's all conversation, sometimes light, and other times quite deep and introspective. Dan has a unique way of getting his guests to really open up, without being pushy or obvious. Probably why the conversations flow so well.

If you're looking for specific "how to" information, The Pipeline may be the wrong venue. But to get a deeper understanding of high performers and what really makes them "tick", it's well worth a listen.

Had Potential

The podcast seemed pretty interesting and then all of a sudden nothing. It's been two months since the last episode came out. Not a good way to keep listeners. Unsubscribed

So glad Dan is back doing The Pipeline. Keep it up with the great guests!
