Customer ReviewsSee All
Rarely have I seen such unanimity among reviewers. I agree with each of the above comments. Great guests, among the best one is going to find on any podcast on like topics. Mr. Kall obviously means well and he has my deep appreciation for all his work for bringing us these guests. But the interviewing skills just do not match up to the quests' quality. My suggestion: realize where your talents lie! Mr. Kall is obviously a great producer. Why not just step back and produce the podcasts and find someone else actually to conduct the interviews. There's no shame in that. There are plenty of great progressive interviewers out there and Mr. Kall is obviously great at constructing a show. Just divide the labor properly and you have a COMPLETE winner!
This guy doesn't prepare at all for these podcasts. He catches the guests off guard and forces them to correct his wildly inaccurate statements or he begs them for their opinion on something even the guest says isn't their field. It sounds like he recorded the episode with a potato
