Learning Something New
I really enjoyed listening to Impact Hustlers. At the moment there is only one episode but I can tell from the first episode that this podcast will be very beneficial to my business endeavors in the future.
The interview has a nice flow, there aren't any awkward or silent pauses, there isn't any fumbling over the questions/answers. It's really polished and professional without being too "stuffy".
I love that the show has "professional" intro and outro music/bumper. That lets me know that the creator of the podcast is serious about the show.
The audio quality is simply amazing and the actual content of the show is outstanding.
I look forward to future episodes.
