Interviews with Interesting People

Created and hosted by Ed Sutkowski, Interesting People is an American podcast program produced in Peoria, Illinois. Interesting People features men and women who have made their mark in the arts, business, education, science, healthcare, and sports. Ed’s modest demeanor and insatiable curiosity starts with his belief that there is always something new to be discovered in the backdrop of your daily life. The key to the program’s success is that Ed’s base knowledge, preparation and approach gain the interviewee’s respect. From there, good things follow. Ed asks nontraditional questions of his guests which leads to lively conversations mixed with insight and humor. While Ed is quite accomplished in his own right, he never overshadows whoever is on the air, and always gets the best out of his guests. That is a skill that comes with experience and the self-confidence of knowing that this is not about me.
