Fantastic Business Insight Podcast!
This is a fantastic podcast! I just listened to the Warren Buffett episode and was blown away. Poppy has a special ability to provide a safe space for a uniquely personal give-and-take and, once there, she asks really tough questions and, somehow, gets disarmingly honest answers, without creating tension or argument. Podcasts are best when you hear things you didn’t know or suspect already; actually learn something; and see the interviewee more fully than before. Really fantastic podcast and I can’t wait to hear more!
