Based on Christian's podcasting track record, I can't wait to hear what's coming from him on this one! "And Another Thing" will merge the consistent quality of his previous (but ongoing) podcasts with a vast and varied world of new content. No doubt Christian's cleverness and open perspective will keep us coming back for every other thing he comes up with. I'm in.
A mixed bag...in the best way
Christian is easy to listen to and has thus far proven to have dynamic guests. Even if you don't think you'll be interested in the topic up for discussion in a given week, he won't disappoint with his witty remarks and enjoyable conversations with his guests. I'm very much looking forward to his future episodes.
Two thumbs way up!
This podcast talks about topics that I'm interested in and brings new insight that I might not have thought of. Each week I find myself eagerly waiting to hear what Christian will talk about next and who his guest will be. I encourage everyone to subscribe to this wonderful podcast.
