My favorite podcast

Paul is a true Renaissance man who is able to identify the most important and interesting issues, and bring you along to learn about them with an array of fabulously knowledgeable and balanced expert guests. It’s amazing this is free.

Well done.

Two authors talking about an area of personal interest made for an interesting hour. Thanks. I’ll be talking to Bill on the WiseAthletes podcast soon.

Great Guests, Great Interviews

Love this podcast! The interviews are well done - I’m wondering the questions moments before they’re asked and the interviews always end up going in directions that lead to interesting, well researched places. Highly recommend.
