The Bad: Latka's interview style is grating; he cuts guests off with rapidfire questions, only to interrupt them again when they form an answer. It begs the question whether this podcast is actually about top CEO's, Startups and Founders, or about Latka's self-imposed grandiose. The Good(ish): Latka does attract talent to his podcast (that is where the relevance in the podcast name ends). If Latka's aggressive style is your thing, that's great. If not, I encourage you to listen to the heaps of incredible business podcasts out there.

A Must Listen!
