This guy is deplorable to his guests. He treats people like dirt and the reality is they’re doing HIM a favor by going on his podcasts. I’m tired of listening him berate people over and over. It’s pretty pretty terrible to sit through. I’m not sure if he’s simply not prepping the guests well enough or if he’s not skilled in tactful interviewing, but he could better handle the interviews better. Listening to this podcast makes me think less of the human race. Does the industry think this behavior is ok? This perpetuates negative behavior.
