Speaking about the series Cormac Moore said:
“I’m a huge fan of podcasts and wanted to challenge myself to produce something that I hope people will find interesting. I’ve been working on this for about a year now and have been lucky enough to interview some incredibly interesting people who have amazing stories, insights and experiences that I can’t wait for people to hear. I really think they’ll like them.”.
