He genuinely wants those in his inner circle to be happy and successful, and he understands that open, honest communication and transparent business practices are the best way to get there. Above all, Brett has a passion for all-things-podcasting that continues to inspire me to do more and BE more. Brett’s support is the gift that keeps on giving.”

It's a huge compliment with podcast hosts recommend OTHER podcasts to their listeners. Brett Allan's, The Open Mic Podcast, gets recommended frequently by fellow hosts. He researches his guests and never asks the same, short bio, type questions.
