Entertaining, insightful, and actionable! 🔥

This podcast is so insightful and I’ve enjoyed every episode I’ve listened to so far! Matt is a very skilled interviewer - he does such a great job of sharing his own wisdom and I love how he leads meaningful conversations with other communication experts who bring so much experience and actionable insight to the table. Highly recommend checking this show out - there’s an episode that will benefit everyone, and you’ll always leave having learned something new!

Stilted

The interviews are so stilted that they sound like they are reading from notes rather than having a real conversation. As a result, the episodes are boring and hard to follow and absorb. Better to put the notes and professorial lectures away, and have real spontaneous conversation.

Great podcast but very bad sound quality!

I love this podcast, great topics, wonderful guests and just very insightful! The only issue is the sound quality, in some episodes it’s very hard to understand what the guests are saying. Please fix the this issue. Thanks!
