Insightful Questioning Worth The Ear Energy
Johns style and content is something I have grown to really enjoy as a listener. He’s the complete package of someone viewable yet realizes the growing power of audio. Sometimes when you have it, you have it. John has it. MikeOlsen.biz

Does a great job with guests in 30 minutes
Jon Fortt's podcast gets to the heart of the matter quickly. He is respectful yet tough. I get a lot out of listening to his interviews.
This is a first class podcast! As a subscriber of several podcasts over multiple genres, the Fortt Knox podcast has quickly made its way to the top of my list of favorites. The content is consistently good whether it is an interview with a family member (actually that was an amazing episode) or a CEO. There is no rambling and Jon does a fantastic job of setting up the interview, keeping it focused, and then ending before the energy drops. The editing is masterful and, what any avid listener will appreciate, there are no ads. Having said that, the quality in this podcast is so good that I think I'd still be ok with an ad or two. Great job. You've got me as an avid subscriber. Subscribe today.

Fortt knows how to interview and is very informed on any number of topics. Excellent!
I sit next to Fortt every morning on our CNBC program, "Squawk Alley". So I'm well aware of his ability to cut through the noise (and hype) in tech, and help viewers focus on the important trends to watch. The podcast, format, however, adds another layer to his skill set. In an era crowded with podcasts, "Fortt Knox" has quickly jumped to the front of the line in my weekly podcast diet. It's a good thing it's called "Fortt Knox" -- because it's gold.
Saavy, Smart & Interesting
As a manager in Silicon Valley high-tech, I am always looking for helpful insights from successful and smart entrepreneurial leaders. Jon Fortt's newest podcast Fortt Knox offers exactly that. The candid interviews about subjects of real importance are jarring - in that they get me thinking about things in way I typically wouldn't. Fortt asks questions that - left to myself - I wouldn't have even thought to ask. And yet, oddly enough, as these ideas are being explored, I'm often left wondering, "How is it that I never even thought about this topic in this way." It's powerful, enriching content brought to you by a powerful, enriching voice. After catching Jon's analysis on CNBC's Squawk Alley for the last few years, this is a welcome addition to my weekly intake and learning.
