The Best Brooklyn Podcast
Ofer Cohen does an amazing job digging deep with all his guests. I’m always interested in Brooklyn and this podcast is exactly what I need. Keep it up!
Really insightful and also somehow charming!
Ofer is a natural at interviewing, and his rapport with his subjects is obvious. Plus, his idea of getting hard-boiled real-estate people to go off-message for a change and talk about something else (philosophy? psychology? their childhoods?) is genius.
This is a great new podcast. If you are into the growth of Brooklyn or even if you are looking to be inspired by people’s stories. The length of each show makes listening to every episode easy. Highly recommended.
