This podcast is right up my alley. I love the guests and the perspectives they bring to this topic. My only complaint is that I wish the show was longer. With 30-40 minutes per interview there isn’t enough time to delve too deep into some topics. Long form interviews would provide more expansive conversations. Thanks again Ted!
Love the discussion and insight provided.
Good show - bad production
I listened to the first six episodes of the show and found the content and discussions engaging and thought-provoking. What I found difficult was the noise that overwhelms the discussions to the point that one must strain to hear what the speakers are saying. I'm not sure why Ted decided to hold these discussions in noisy environments like coffee shops, where the sounds of steamers and people talking and slamming glass wear around in the background impedes the quality of the listeners' experience to the point that you just want to turn it off. Perhaps he never intended to concern himself about others' listening experience and was just thinking of his own conversational process, rather than who might be listening. If you can get past the poor production quality, you will certainly enjoy this podcast.
