It’s not just the guests that Srini is bringing to this podcasts series that “make” the podcasts. Yes, they’re all people who have done incredible things, and yes, they’re all people who have inspiring things to say, and yes, they’re all rockstars in their own right. What makes this particular podcast series stand out is the way in which Srini dials down on the questions. He clearly knows his audience. If someone gives him an answer about, for instance, how to stay motivated after a creative failure, and if that answer is beautiful but not yet spelled out in a way that’s tangible for the audience, he’s going to ask the guest to dial down deeper and offer something that a listener can utilize as an immediate takeaway. I have a decade of experience as a college professor, and this quality of taking information and going beyond just disseminating it, to the next step of making it pro-active and useful, is a rarity in a world of podcasts where questions are obvious, rote, and answers can become canned. There’s a reason why so many high-profile and successful people have come to this podcast, and it has a lot to do with the host and what is obviously an incredible team of people, each bringing her/his creative talents to collectively create a podcast that’s full of integrity, inspiration, and fun.
