Interesting, Compelling, Fascinating Conversation
I am listening to David Pasquesi's interview where Simone Salis probes the career and background of his guest, David's life. I love how Simone probes David to help clarify his story and this direct style makes the show so much more interesting. A Chicago native, David talks about his life in improv and where it led him. His list of teachers and the world he was exposed to were all a part of my own TV history. So it was a thrill to hear the story of how his career evolved. Keep those great shows coming!
As a regular podcast listener, Hoomans podcast is always lovely to listen to. Simone’s Italian accent is like butter in the duldrums of my days, especially the charming way he says the word “Neighborhood”
Insightful looks into the personal lives and stories of the people who shape our community. Host is wonderfully talented at guiding conversations in a natural way that keeps the interviews interesting and flowing throughout their entirety.
