Mark gently invited me to consider having a format, structure, and revisiting my expectations for it. He also indulged my playful side, encouraging me to channel something more of myself into the podcast, as well as having those boundaries to contain what/who the podcast is for.

Some people instinctively make good ideas better, they can't help but elevate; Mark is one of them. This is the kind of personality everyone needs on their side - especially in this industry because podcasting can be a lonely and relentless business.
