One year and I have never missed an episode!

Absolutely love all the episodes.

Really good podcast

Roula K.
It’s been 2 years I am listening to SYSK without a dull moment. It is amazing how every subject is about something going on in our life no matter what stage of it we’re in. Fun, informative, educational with inspiring guests. I like how the interviews go straight to the point, no waste of time. The ideas and books and other podcasts it led me to know about is priceless. Thank you Mike for always asking the sharp questions, for reading into the minds of your listeners and not holding back on being honest.

Great podcast, very informative even for EU citizens. Keep up the good work Mike and team!

Are you on holidays or running out of new and challenging topics?

Hi Mike, I have listened today to your Podcast no 192 ( not yet on your website but it has been posted on Apple Podcast) and as I am sure you shall agree ... it is the exact same one posted in 2016 under Podcast no 13: “Great Life Hacks to make life simpler”. The only addition to that Podcast are the sponsors and a few footnotes. Just thought this is something you should know that we know because we are not just consumers, we listen to benefit from the shared information and use it. Which means, we pay attention! If it is a re run or remix ...that is ok as long as it is not posted as brand new information, that would not be fair to the loyal audience, let the newcomers browse through the episodes. Just giving unsolicited advice... have a good week. Looking forward to some more interesting conversations. Anamaria, listening from The Hague, Netherlands

Great podcast in the right lane...

Mike has a pleasant voice, and articulates well. His questions are open and very inviting for his well-chosen guests.
This podcast really should be in any podcaster’s list; to hear how it could be done well, very well!

Great podcast

Thank you for a fun podcast to listen on my way to work! Cheers from Netherlands


It’s amusement and commercial ‘science’ that might do good in a bar at night, rather than something I find interesting. Furthermore, the narrator’s speech is flat and not nice to listen to. It sounds like a computer, a little like Steven Hawking.

Love this podcast

Living in the Netherlands.
Love this podcast. Enjoy every episode!
