I first became aware of Srini and Co's podcast when he gave an opening keynote at Podcast Movement 2014. So many podcasts about inreviewing creative people fell short with me, but there was something about his talk that made it clear: "This one will be different." And I was right.
Srini isn't just out to scratch someone's back in the hope they scratch his. He's genuinely concerned with what makes people tick and -- it seems -- highlighting that there is struggle involved in creation. I find that comforting when so many other podcasts seem to be more like, "Dream it, and the universe will give it to you..."
There's no feel-good fluff, here; just stories about people who love what they do so much that they can't imagine not doing it. Sure, there are interviews with some well-known people, but it's often the stories of people I've never heard of that I love most.
As sort of a bookend, I saw Srini moderate a panel at Podcast Movement 2015. It was one of my favorite sessions of the weekend; in large part, because Srini is so good at what he does.
