So much potential, but...
Smart hosts, solid first guest, awesome idea...but poor execution. Eminem is a great storyteller, and hearing him talk about his creative process is fascinating. But the editing needs a *lot* of work. Felt like it was put together without a full narrative arc in mind. Sorta came off as an ad for Em's new song. Hope it gets better.
It's the editing, stupid
Guys, get it together. You have three voices in this podcast, and you don't identify Eminem's until 4 minutes into it. There's not even a synopsis of the episode to help you understand who you're listening to. I know you can do better than this.
Come on. Rick Rubin and Malcolm Gladwell?!! Two genius producers - you can do so much better!!!!
