Artists need guides and to fill the cup of encouragement at times. This podcast is currently a source of that for me.

Truly everything wrong with old white guys podcasting

This podcast has somehow remained in my feed because there's an occasional interesting guest (Steve Earle, Steve Van Zandt, Cal Newport), but honestly: Koppelman is the worst. A so-called liberal whose politics are so dull and predictable that perhaps 5% of his guests are POC or non-white, cis-gendered males. The dude is desperate to demonstrate his knowledge of ANYTHING that most of his podcast episodes are simply him talking over guests, attempting to prove his worth; if he wasn't so darn unlikable it would be sad. He literally sounds like he's hyperventilating sometimes when he's trying to cut into a guest's answer. Check out his Twitter feed, it's more of the same. Grand proclamation about such-and-such singer being underrated or overrated or this actor giving the most brilliant performance EVER. (Then the dude throws a huge hissy fit when his mediocre Showtime - remember Showtime? - show doesn't get nominated for an Emmy.) The podcast adds nothing and liklier than not, if someone you love is doing this podcast they're just hitting the promo circuit and it would probably be a better use of your time to find them on a different show. That is, of course, unless you enjoy listening to dull white dudes who love hearing themselves drone on pretend they're not dull white dudes who love hearing themselves drone on.

A Must Listen

Brian, excellent podcast. You are part of my “must” lineup of podcast listening. You ask the questions I would ask. You dig into great success thoughts with your guests. Thank you!

Toad

Loved the Toad the Wet Sprocket episode so much. I'm one of those who's been a fan since the begining. A question, though: Where was Randy and why was he not mentioned?

Great podcast, too much interruption from host

This could be a really great podcast! the host just needs to step back the interruptions a bit and stop summarizing the guests’ ideas for them before they’re finished. The Cal Newport interview was especially rough.

Let your guests speak

Holy moly, Brian Koppelman! This show has so much to offer ... but please! Let your guests speak! The Steve Earle interview was mostly a garbled mess of you shouting over his answers until (every time) he gave up and you had your say. I’m guessing this is borne of your enthusiasm and desire to connect, but it makes for unpleasant listening. Please. Let your guests speak. And listen to them — so we can, too.

One of the best long-form interview podcasts

Brian Koppelman is a TV writer and screenwriter who broke in with "ROUNDERS," and has had a long career filled with ups and downs. He's also very thoughtful about creativity. On "The Moment," he interviews a lot of different people--actors, writers, musicians (Koppelman's also a former A and R guy), chefs, and others--to talk to them about crucial moments in their life's journeys when their backs were against the wall, or when they just had to decide to "do the thing." Highly recommended.

Deeply satisfying but avoid the fruit

Thoughtfully and deeply addicting. Have loved the discussions except for the fruit given to Maggie early on. So painful and distracting to listen to her eat between breaths. Slurp, chew, gag aaand that’s enough of that for me. Looking forward to exploring more discussions around the table with no food. 🤗

Fantastic

This podcast is a must for anyone who is interested in people and why they make decisions. Brian is a phenomenal interviewer and pulls things out of people that most can't. There is a pretty wide variance in industries/topics that are covered so find someone in the feed you might be interested in and give it a try.

Interviewer interrupts too much

I feel like this podcast has great potential. But I find the interviewer interrupts the guest often and talks too much in general. He needs to practice listening more. We want to hear the guest, not the interviewer.

Love the podcast, but...

This is a great Podcast overall. But, there are a couple of easy fixes that should be considered. Let the guest speak more. Example, the first half of the Nick McDonnell podcast was mind-numbingly boring. But, once you got to Nick talking about his experiences, it was fantastic. One other issue, I almost fell out of my chair when Nick asked you if you ever had guests with opposing political perspectives and you said “yes”. I must have missed all of those podcasts. Great show, great guests, just let them speak more. Thanks for doing what you do.
