Wonderfully Interesting, Open Interview Style
There are a lot of interview podcasts out there, but only a handful that present truly unique and interesting conversations. That's what Elaborate does. Host Jake Lloyd is deeply engaged with his guests and his genuine curiosity about their lives helps to create a discussion that sounds like it's between two friends, rather than interviewer/subject. The discussion is loose and open, both in style and substance. When I listen to the show, I'm excited to learn about people I've never heard of, and I come away from each episode wanting to meet and spend more time with the guest. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone interested in learning about a wide variety of people while feeling like you're sitting down to chat with new friends.
Feel like you're making friends
I am slightly biased because I was an interviewee in episode 4 but I've been listening to the other interviews and I really love the casual, free form style of interview, and getting insight into different lives.
Fun spirited, occasionally self deprecating, chats with people who talk like you know them.
Meet New Folks One Hour At A Time!
Elaborate is a great, punchy little podcast where you get the opportunity to listen to and learn about new folks in the span of hour, many of them from the creative field. It really aims a lens on the inner workings of a lot of working artists.
Jake does a great job keeping the questions interesting and guides the interview as more of a conversation than anything, which leads to some pretty intimate reveals from the guests. Definitely a wonderful experience learning about these seemingly "regular folks" making their way in life, in their various passions.
