Stripping Away the BS: Ben Smith
I listened to the first episode of the podcast, an interview with Buzzfeed’s editor-in-chief Ben Smith. I felt that, although the host asked Smith generally insightful and intelligent questions, Smith was not as engaged in the interview as one would expect. While he did provide wisdom and share some of his struggles, such as financial difficulties and indecisiveness about his career path, Smith was, overall, not the most forthcoming interviewee and seemed unprepared for most of the questions. However, lackluster interviewee aside, I appreciate the concept of the podcast as a whole. As an undergraduate student in her last semester of college who is unsure of her future career path, I find it comforting to know that others struggle with this same uncertainty, and are still able to achieve successful careers.
