Joanna Coles podcast
First, I love the way you interview, Bobbi. It’s natural, “at home”, as if in your own living room. I’ve listened to several and they are all that way. Your style is spot on.
This interview was so insightful as I knew she had been at Cosmo but not exactly sure how she got there. And I loved her on Project Runway Allstars too!! Thanks for a great interview of a truly formidable woman. Love you both!
there’s take away gems in every episode
Bobbi is a great interviewer. It feels like I am listening in on a true conversation. From the in depth questions to the in depth answers, Bobbi really gets to the heart of the guest’s passions and lifestyle. It’s a nice break to my day and I end the listen learning something new about Bobbi, her guests and my own perceptions. Bobbi Brown is very well rounded and so generously shares her talents and knowledge on a variety of topics. I wish she would have done this sooner. I look forward to future episodes.
So happy to be able to consume an uplifting and insightful podcast from a woman my own age. Love her attitude about food and health on this podcast.
