Power to the People!

There are many stories of the common person out there, some more or less interesting. But in these times, the story of the everyday worker is one that needs to be heard. This podcast is giving the mic to those workers. People like you and me, most probably. People we can relate to. I am deeply grateful for every episode.

Studs Terkel for podcast age

Provides something you don’t hear or see elsewhere: the voices of people in America who aren’t celebrities, politicians, or the wealthy—just normal people telling their story. Would be great to see this scaled up into its own television series.

The people have spoken

And they have a lot to say. It’s incredible hearing the stories from all over from my own hometown to each and every coast and everything in between.

Max does a great job as an interviewer. He actually gets to know people and has a genuine sense getting at what matters most to his guests. The interviews never feel invasive or voyeuristic. Instead, they’re all very involved and house a lot of heart.
