 Gypsy Tales Podcast... if you want a really down to earth in depth interview with Semenuk.

 Yeah but that Gypsy dude all too often talks about himself and over his guests. We don’t want to hear about him but rather the athletes.

 @timvan: i thought I am the only one recognising this. There are sentences where he literally says “like” about 6-7 times. Annoying after a while.

It's like that, and like this, and like that, and uh
It's like this, and who gives a f*ck about those?
So just chill, 'til the next episode"

 @generictrailrider: Kyle Straight just did GT podcast. I get what you say but i think your misunderstanding the art in keeping a guest involved and able to share their story. When the host has an ability to share their own experiences as well, builds the foundation for intimate conversion and reciprocate the relation of each ones experience's and stories to dissect deeper into each aspect of their experience. A 2-3.5 hour sit down and talk has to be mutual.

@ around @2:50 Kyle ask for that mutual experience.

 @likeittacky: that’s fair but Gypsy still isn’t someone I prefer to listen to and I believe he shared a similar rebuttal on one of his videos.

 Wow! I've not heard an interview with Brandon where he said more than two sentences. This was wonderfully enlightening, he is very articulate and clearly very private. There was zero name dropping or specific mentions and I thought Kate did a fantastic job of engaging him about himself and not in a commercial way.

 First podcast I’ve ever listened to from start to end. Two people I respect and you could tell they respected each other. Great job interviewing, Kate.

 Extremely enticed by how all the powerhouse brands involved weren't able to put the two in the same room in 2023. This feels like content from the height of the lockdown in 2020.

 To pay the rent?

 They definitely ride to pay the rent, but I’m sure they enjoy the challenge of competition too.

It’d be tough competing professionally if your performance determines your paycheck.

 Semenuk is well past paying rent.
