Bethenny Inteview

So disappointing. I was excited to listen to the interview with Bethenny Frankel and with it being only 30 mins, the interviewer had a short window to have Bethenny convey to the audience her success in business. Instead, 20 mins of the show was spent on the reality shows she appeared on. I understand touching on that but I wanted to know the nitty gritty of what made her a true success! As a fellow entrepreneur, I wanted to be left inspired and motivated and have a relatable sense with her. Instead, the whole interview was a huge flop... not on Bethenny’s fault but the interviewer and producers.

High School radio

I really want to like this podcast. They get some good guests I really want to hear about. But the interviewer. The questions are like what a high school freshman media class would ask. There’s little back and forth. It’s like you can see him holding up a notecard and moving his finger along the words reading the questions his mom wrote down the night before. It’s awkward.

Well Designed!

Love these podcasts and am grateful for their concise length and therefore how consumable they are! I can listen to one or two during my commute. Very valuable to hear from established leaders on their success and advice.
