“I am getting more and more impressed with Jordan all the time. He is an amazing young podcaster. I see how he does his homework with interviews and takes the time to listen when guests answer. Make sure that you subscribe now so you can say that you have been listening to one of the biggest podcasters from near the beginning.”

“There’s a lot of good podcasts, with a lot of major big names. The reason why I find Jordan’s goes from good to fan-freaking-tastic is the interaction. Shortly said it’s not boring. I’ve heard so many people interview amazing people, and jus totally flop. Amazing people have been interviewed countless times and if you hear them on one platform i hateeee hearing them basically default and go through the motions of what they’ve said on other platforms. Jordan makes the person he’s interviewing exactly that- a person. Somehow he manages to reach into their life and connect, pull out the wisdom they have to offer, and lead them towards applying it directly to day-to-day life. Yes I love ooober-major-big phenomenal achievers, but if I can’t relate then i can’t relate and the wisdom they have to offer just falls flat. Here Jordan is consistently pulling out wisdom and emphasizing how it’s applicable to my day-to-day life, and I’m all the better for it.”

"Jordan is an incredible podcaster. The show is high quality all-around, from the guests to the music to the audio quality. It is clear Jordan is passionate and knowledgeable about what he does. I've listened to 5+ in the less than 24 hours since I've discovered this show and I'll be listening to it regularly from hear on out. I listen to A LOT of podcasts (Gary Vee, Tim Ferriss, Lewis Howes, etc.) and Jordan's show is in that upper echelon. It's a must listen!"

“Jordan is extremely passionate with a nice touch of calmness to him. He allows the guests to speak majority of the show instead of narcissistically trying to add his 2 cents in all the time and make it about him. If you’re interested in hearing substantial content from people of superb interest in today’s world, listen to this podcast.”

“I've been listening to Jordan's podcast for about 3 months now and I just want to take a minute to congratulate him on the great conversations he is sharing with the world. I listen to it every morning during my workout at the gym and during my commute. The episodes that speak to me the most are the ones related to education and innovation. Today I listened to the episode with Naveen Jain ... WOW!!!!! it was revealing and his energy was just contagious. It's been my favourite episode so far. I am very inspired by the things that Gen Zers like Jordan and other folks out there are doing because they are revolutionizing the world of work.”
