I’ve been listening for about four years. Some great guests and fascinating topics! Much variety, too.
Longest and most frequent ads of any podcast, and I listen to many. Some last nearly 5 minutes. Seriously. (It’s like he’s putting his kids through college!)
If you’re looking for an interview where you feel he’s really delved down and asked the (any) questions a skeptic might, this sure won’t happen. He listens as though he’s taking it in, as though the guest is a client. I understand that dynamic: guests won’t agree to be on a show if they think they’ll be challenged...But some NEED it, they’re full of “it”. A great interviewer knows what the audience wants to ask, and probes, I thought?!! Some are just plain nuts.
Frequently pandering for listeners to write a positive review..I resent it, frankly. Reviews should be balanced and honest. The reviews here reflect not the real story but a desire to please Jim Harold, who is certainly a nice guy but he’s also doing this for a living. Jim vocally can’t stand/doesn’t get negative reviews. He asks fans to come write good ones just to counter a bad one. But I don’t understand how anyone in the public eye won’t learn from critical feedback. It’s how we improve, and his product, while often marvelous, can certainly be improved.
