Drinks With Friends
Most interview podcasts that I've heard have been all "polished and professional" and extremely "stuffy", if that makes sense.
This particular podcast is professional but far from stuffy.
It's like you haven't seen your friends for a long while due to "life" (kids, spouse, career) taking over so you guys finally link up and play "catch up" on what's been going on since you were last together.
Listening to this podcast felt like I was having drinks with friends. It was informative and entertaining at the same time. Although I wasn't actually THERE I was engaged and felt included (so to speak) in the conversation.
The content is amazing and the audio quality is great. I look forward to more episodes.
Really interesting & unique!
I love that this podcast goes in many different directions and focuses on people from many different walks of life. It's not usually something that I would listen to, but I'm glad that I did! It changed my perspective on some things and was a fun listen too.
Great show for the adventurous-minded
This show has interviews with people who make their life an adventure. After a while, you realize you can do this, too. Love it!
