Great Interviewer

By Jcoconutz - Feb 01 2020
Read more
Brandon has a great interviewing style in such a way that he allows the podcast to be conversational rather than hurried small talk. He explored topics and allows the dialogue to occur organically which I appreciate not only as an interviewee but as a new listener. At no time did I feel like his comments were disingenuous that created a comfortable environment. Thanks Brandon and keep up the great work!

Off to a great start
