Smiley delivers smart entertaining interviews
I love this podcast. I like to save up four or five interviews and have a big blast of Smiley at work. His positive thinking gives me hope for a better America. Promote this man! I want to see him everywhere. He should be on prime time. He's intelligent, he has style, and he actually reads the books his author guests write!
Tavis Smiley is a great journalist. This podcast is my absolute favorite in the News and Politics category. I love the show but the airtime is a little late for me. Mr. Smiley has great interview skills. He brings familiarity to subjects and guests that are seemingly unfamiliar. He is candid, insightful and humorous. He's also easy on the eyes. :) Get this podcast!
Tavis is amaizing. His interviews are intsightful and uplifting. I love how he can get his guests to say things honestly. Tavis has shown me a whole new perspective of the world and I am better for it.
