Can Advice Line be its own podcast?
It’s silly to give HIBT 3 stars because it’s a 5 star podcast that I’ve been following forever. I’m only giving it 3 stars on the rare chance this review is read and acted on. Advice Line should be it’s on podcast and those episodes are clogging up my feed. It may seem inconvenient to listeners to have to follow a million separate podcasts but I’d rather do that because then I know every episode that comes in, I actually want to listen to. Advice Line is cool but not for me and I start to lose track of where I left off on the true HIBT episodes. (We should bring “first world problems” back.)

Let them tell their story
I love the guests and their stories, but to me, it seems like the interviewer interrupts the flow and inserts his assumptions about what happened, sometimes correct and sometimes not. I just want to hear the guest tell their story! The interviewer’s questions are good and often reveal more behind-the-scenes and business-relevant info, but it seems like they aren't being asked at a relevant time in the interview.

Interesting Show, But…
Even though these shows are interesting and informative, this show, along with the new trend with podcasts, now requires a subscription of 5.99 per month in order to listen to the last couple of shows. If I now have pay for every podcast I enjoy, it will bankrupt me. I don’t pay for podcasts. Even if I had all that money, I wouldn’t pay unless they offered a donation. I would gladly pay more if that were the case and I had the money. I just believe in including everybody, especially when it comes to information sharing. Throwing adds in is ok, I suppose, providing they are not excessive and are distributed equally among all listeners regardless of their ability to pay.

Powerful stories
Grateful for all of the conversations that offer real insights and inspiration to all of us working to build something. And loving the Advice Line episodes!!!

The advice Guy gets out of his guests is pure gold for entrepreneurs. Anytime I have a down day as a business owner, HIBT inspires me and reminds me why I love owning a business.

Advice Line
Loving the advice line format! The traditional format is still entertaining and informative (please keep it!) but the advice line is a fun addition. I’d also love to hear more from service-based app founders. Thanks!

Long time lover but the ads!
I’ve loved this podcast for years but the ads go on forever. What a painful experience.

Ugh
Don’t force me to listen with a ‘free trial’. I’m an entrepreneur also but shady sales makes my stomach churn. Desperate is not a good look.

I’m really inspired by this podcast!
I love this podcast! You should interview Shea and Syd McGee who founded Studio McGee and McGee&Co.

Professionalism and skill
I can tell bu how Guy is talking throughout the episode that he has done this before. MANY times. Often times, podcast hosts aren’t that interested in being high energy and serving at the highest capacity, yet Guy clearly displays his competence and excitement to share updates, biz education, etc. Appreciate the work!

Love the show but the Mark Rober episode…meh
I love this show. There are so many episodes with great information and details about the ups and downs of entrepreneurship that don’t get discussed elsewhere. However, THIS particular episode with Mark Rober left me a little unsatisfied. My daughter found Mark Robers videos during COVID. It was a time where school was so tough being at home and virtual but as parents we tried to manage any additional screen time so it wasn’t filled with junk. I can not explain enough how helpful his videos were in explaining science and engineering in a fun way. She loved those videos and so did we. It was educational, interesting and really went a long way in showing her that science and engineering could be engaging long term. As a long time listener of the show. I could tell the approach to this interview felt different. There were several times were it felt like Guy didn’t know much about Mark Rober or just read from a high level background script, wasn’t interested or didn’t connect with the content. Like Guy doesn’t respect what Mark does for a living. Not saying this is true or reflective about how Guy feels. I’m saying the interview came off that way. I totally get not giving much credience to general YouTubers or influencers or how if you have no background on him, general descriptions make his videos sound like “Frat boy or jackass antics” BUT Mark Rober and his content are much different. He is an engineer but much more like a relatable scientist that educates kids in an era that has captured their brains with TikToc dances and irrelevant events. He deserved a more engaging and respectful interview. There were so many opportunities to ask more engaging questions or talk about how his content is giving kids an opportunity to see how STEM activities can still be enjoyed as an adult. I just expected more and was a little let down here.

An Inspiring Perspective
This podcast has had a large impact on how I think about the world. Now when I interact with a product or business I wonder about the origin story, the human inspiration that drove it, the failures and challenges that were eventually overcome. It has certainly sparked in me an interest in entrepreneurship. I would highly recommend to anyone!

Engaging interviews

Great but too much diet content
Guy Raz is incredible, and I learn so much! But Guy also has an agenda with diet and nutrition topics — I wish he would stay away from promoting controversial diet-culture companies

Superb podcast
One of my favorite podcasts. Guy Raz is one of the most talented interviewers in the podcast world.

Too many ads
No clue about content, couldn't focus with all the ads running. Won't be listening any longer

Inspiring and captivating
I discovered HIBT four years ago and have been captivated by the episodes. I would go for a walk after work and listen to one a day. I started by searching for the episodes about companies I love and use…then I just listened to them all!! I am now that person that shares random trivia facts about companies when I’m with others. I recommend companies to others when I hear a story that I respect. I patron companies that I might not have noticed. Honestly, I’ve learned so much about entrepreneurship and find it so interesting, that it is a field I would have considered many years ago had I known what it was. Thank you to all who have worked to put together this wonderful podcast!

Always Wildly Interesting
Fascinating interviews with people who have untaken projects that I would have thought I’d have no interest in…boy was I wrong!

One of My All-Time Favorites
A great show that has stood the test of time. I consider Guy Raz a master at what he does. His talent is subtle but real.

Was a great show
Has Guy and team lost the ability to edit a story down to the essential parts. It seems to me the goal is stretch every story to about 1.5 hours. Way too many nonessential details. The old format where the episodes were around 45 mins to an hour was so much better. It now takes them 45 mins to cover the background leading up to the main story. Many of my friends have the same feedback. It is a shame that they ruined a great podcast.

Get rid of the music
The interviews seem to be over produced, if that’s what you call it. Why would you have music playing while your guests are talking about the details on why you are interviewing them ????? !!!!!!! So annoying. Makes me move on to another podcast.

Can be for all ages?
Hi Guy Raz! I’m a big fan of you and your podcast because you make these very heartstopping episodes. My fav episode is the Tetris and Dave’s barbecue! Ps, is the podcast for all ages?

Love this show!
I started two companies proximately 22 years ago, and they could not have been more different. Both were very successful, but I certainly had my ups and downs. I am totally inspired by the stories, I have my laugh out loud moments because yeah… I’ve been there… Done that.. 🤣 . I’ve learned so much from this podcast.

Insightful and worthwhile
Great interviewer…asks probing questions respectfully but doesn’t hedge on anything…also does his homework and brings out details that enrich the discussions. Must listen podcast. Enjoy!!!

Boring
They give too much backstory I could watch for 30 minutes without seeing the title and not know what the business is

Hello!
I have been listening to this for 20 minutes and I already love it. I also love a lot of other Guy Raz podcasts.
Wwdtm fan!
Absolute favorite
Guy has kept me company for many a road trip with HIBT - the variety of companies and backstories have forced me more than once to stay in my car till a story is finished. Great podcast!

Show notes
Good show and motivational. However, please don’t be nosy - don’t ask the inventors their contacts - like chemists or trade secrets. Why does Guy Raz require that info?

Love hearing from various business owners
I’m always so niched down that I love listening to all the various business owners on this podcast share their journeys. I always leave more open to opportunities and comforted knowing there are other business owners in the world just like me.
Jennifertherealtor
Close to great
Excellent variety of guests. Guy can fine-tune his interviewing by not suggesting answers.

Good questions being asked😊👍
I love listening to these in the car on a long drive or just chilling outside on the porch!! Love guy and how he asked questions that keep the people getting interviewed talking about there company or business or whatever he’s talking to them about! 💕😁
KatieStevedores
Excellent! One of my Go-to Podcasts!
Never lets me down! Even the episodes that cover businesses or individuals that do not originally interest me almost never fail to pull me in. Guy, I understand the self-doubt, but I do hope you realize on a more objective level that you are nailing it! :)

Separate How I Built This Lab
I really wish How I Built This Lab was a separate podcast. And we could choose to subscribe to that one as well

Love it!
Very interesting you don’t have as much good people on as you used to but still good. And sometimes you bring something woke into it but other than that I love this podcast!

Fascinating and well done!
I enjoy this app while driving or mowing. Guy does an excellent job asking the questions that I would ask!

Why is the episode about Tory Burch focused on her husband
I typically like HIBT episodes. I like Guy’s questions typically. I wish he didn’t focus so much on Mr. Burch’s opinion of Tory’s goals and aspirations during this episode.
pdcstlvr23
Great show!
I really enjoy this podcast. Guy Raz is well prepared and asks enough tough questions to make it interesting. And, you really get a feel for the difficulties that people face when starting a business. The Thomas Keller episode was really good!
