Insightful, entertaining and actionable 🙌

I am consistently bowled over by the brilliant advice and inspiring conversations that Jon & Chris have with their guests. It feels like they're always willing to stand behind conversations that seem challenging to have (or for most of us to get our heads around without help!). Highly recommend listening and subscribing to Smart People Podcast if you want the knowledge AND ideas to explore your own personal / professional evolution & development (and reach your overall goals as a result)!

Always thought provoking!

Jon and Chris find the most interesting topics and people to join the show. They do their homework and ask questions that delve into key items about the person’s work. I have been listening since 2014 and have never heard an episode that was dull.

By far my favorite podcast

These are my people. A variety of thought provoking guests with the credentials, but with a focus on living a purposeful life. I love Chris’s interview style and questions. You can tell he’s passionate about what he does and I share his sense of curiosity!

Host is busy while guest talks?

Why the sound of bubbles or something while guest is talking, like host is doing something on the computer. Annoying to listen to, and rude to the guest if they hear it too. Stop doing that please.

Great idea with excellent execution

First, they get great guests. They are pretty good at brining on "smart" people :) Second, Chris does a wonderful job of just having a conversation for the first few minutes so you get to know more about the interviewee than just his/her book and area of expertise. Then, Chris is strong with his questions and his curiosity is on display. I have purchased a number of books, engaged in new habits and changed the way that I think based on this show. Kudos to Chris and John.

Not So Smart after all

I really wanted to like this one, as some of the guests seem very promising. However, I find these hosts insufferable, frankly, and there are SO MANY better options out there available (The Art of Charm, for example). The poor content of the program explains why this show isn't more popular. I think with different hosts, this one could be a slam-dunk.

Terrible Host

The latest episode was just a super left wing screed against Donald Trump. The host didn't challenge a single outrageous statement the guest made, including that Trump is the most un-Christian person since the time of Jesus. They host seemed too afraid to question anything the guest said. It was so terrible that I unsubscribed.

Totally worth it!

Smart People Podcast is fantastic - the content is engaging, educational, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Jon and Chris do a great job of interviewing interesting guests and piecing together a phenomenal podcast. All of the episodes are great, but if you're looking for a place to start, check out "Episode 248 – Roman Krznaric – How Should We Live?". It has Krznaric discussing his latest book that entangles philosophy and psychology as he explores practical (applied) history.

Abundant Amount Golden Insight

This podcast is packed full of golden insight! I am so jazzed about this Podcast because it offers a broad variety of insightful topics from intriguing people. Thank you for the many gains from the interview with Heather Gray about stop compromising. Big take homes were: Ask yourself the question: what does having it all mean to you? Get clear with what it is you want and what do you not want any more. Define your perfert day. Define vision of success and happiness. Are you willing to give yourself permission to feel your ideal feelings and if one is confidence, are you willing to feel afraid and vulnerable? Yes to it all! Thank you! InterviewvaletCF
