Claire is persistent. She asked me every time she saw me to be a guest on her podcast. So I eventually said yes when she baited me with Red Bull and chocolate. The actual day of the recording went smoothly. It felt like a fun conversation with an old friend. Within minutes I forgot we were recording. She is a natural conversationalist, a thoughtful listener, has an inquisitive nature and great sense of humor. She has a keen sense to find the hooks of a story and how to build around it to bring it together into a tight, neat package.
