Really Great Interviews
The show brings on a wide variety of guests and Chuck is a great interviewer in that he doesn’t make it about himself at all. He lets his guests speak at length and actually responds to the direction the conversation is going rather than work off a script. Rare these days!
The hosts voice and cadence seems like it would be for a late night paranormal radio show but he’s a lefty very cool 👍
The interviews are always stimulating with subjects and guests that are interesting. This isn’t a trite podcast it’s well researched and expertly produced.
