So good!

This show should be required listening for anyone who wants to be an better interviewer, or even just a better conversationalist. I love hearing the different techniques that the pros use to get what they're looking for out of an interview.

Excellent

Jesse Thorn is gold. I so appreciate his candor, that he breaks down the barriers that most hosts put up where you don’t ever get to know them. His questions are incredibly thought through and his research is unparalleled.
