The Best Interview Podcasts

These are the best interview podcasts I've found so far.

The Ezra Klein Show

hosted by Ezra Klein

Podcast Summary: This is a show for people who like to think deeply about the world. Ezra Klein not only prepares incredibly well for each episode, but also has a knack for asking great follow up questions that push his guests to provide additional depth and share real life examples. Some of my favorites are the interviews with Tyler Cowen and Yuval Noah Harari.

The Joe Rogan Experience

hosted by Joe Rogan

Podcast Summary: Joe Rogan is a provocative podcast host. He is a standup comedian and is often vulgar, but he is also a deep thinker and advocates overall physical and mental well being. It's an interesting mix. He's also not afraid to tackle volatile issues. For example, his interview with psychology professor Jordan Peterson dives into inequality, gender identity, and many other political issues.
