Blake is meticulous in designing this podcast (and blog) to provide listeners/readers with insights into how to lead an effective, values-based life. The guests on the podcast are varied in their backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, which keeps each episode interesting. Blake asks deep questions of his guests and gives them time to really explain their answer. Highly recommend!
Excellent in every way!
Blake does an excellent interview. Clear, thought-provoking questions with focused content. He obviously respects the listeners time, as he limits small talk and provides practical tips and tools for the listener. The show notes have links and time markers- so helpful! As his first interview, he prepared me well and made sure there were no surprises. Looking forward to listening to more interviews!
