Customer Reviews

This review is of the host only

I was drawn to podcast by really interesting guests.. But was shocked by shier unprofessionalism of its host - Berry. He was not prepared (struggled with the way to address his guest) and just seems to be reading of the list of questions that his editor prepared; doesn’t allow the conversation to flow, doesn’t even follow it himself; so he ends up asking the same thing in different ways. He closes with: ha!, Thats interesting! That’s fascinating! And momentarily moves on to the next question from the list.. I was shocked to learn that this guy is ~60 years old and supposedly manages his own fund..

Barry let the guests talk.

We don’t want to hear you more than your guests. Constantly interrupting mid sentence.

Pleasant, elevator-type conversation

I tried to like this podcast. I know it's highly regarded. I think if you like light quasi-intellectual conversation--think Malcolm Gladwell's Blink, for example, or any given businessy book you might find in an airport shop--you'll be down for this podcast. Yes, a wide range of topics so if you're bored you can move onto the next one easily. No, not very deep. There was one interview on the sports industry, for example, that devolved into a long digression about what a 'catch' constitutes in American Football, and end zone displays. I think the interviewer thought his comments would be amusing or interesting, even if off topic. Another interview involved an academic involved in marketing--somewhat worshipful, and, again, not very penetrating questions, e.g. a blithe comparison of Nike stock prices the day after a controversial Kaepernick ad. Again, here, too, the interviewer likes to bring things around to his own anecdotal experiences, like how his wife shops. I almost expected Ricky Ricardo to intone "Luuuuuccccy!" about her habits. So, you see, I tried. Obviously, though, a lot of people like this style, so YMMV. Enjoy!
