Vance asks the tough, honest questions!

This interview style podcast Vance Crowe asks the tough, critical questions to take you deeper into the lives of his guests, discovering what drives them to succeed. In no episode is this more apparent than #45 w/Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Crowe is open & honest sharing himself & his own vulnerabilities w/his guests allowing them to open up in a broader sense to the audience & the audience to feel connected to the show in a meaningful way.

This is Real Life ,

He makes it look easy and it’s not easy

It seems, at first glance, that Vance is lucky and he found a giant pile of interesting people with stories that we would all want to hear. However, when you really listen, you come to understand that it is Vance who gets the guests to share interesting stories about their lives and share things about their work that we would not normally get to know because we wouldn’t know to ask.

Stay curious, Vance. Stay insightful. Stay enthusiastic and keep doing the podcast.

Hmmmm

Good pod, but if the website has a misspelled word, please mention it. Archetype isn’t so obscure we can’t tap it into a browser from memory but then it didn’t work.
