Great!

Mark asks great questions and always has really good advice of his own to add.

A pathetic interviewer

A 100% waste of time. Suster is an extremely poor interviewer. Questions are completely uninteresting and this should just stay a Starbucks conversation.

Suster loves Suster and interviews Suster. And Suster is amazed by how Suster is great.

If you heard Hornik you can skip Suster. Hornik will waste your time with his mother and Suster wastes your time with his son. He is just and older Hornik. Both are very happy with themselves.
