soupSure, but that's Simon. I'm sure you would talk about the few life events that shaped you repeatedly too if you had a podcast where the central topic is the head space of a pro athlete. He may repeat himself but he's not disingenuous in playing up different "characters" based on who he's talking to. Name one interviewer or podcaster who doesn't use the same rhetoric consistently over time. It's also episode what, 20? Give him time.
I wouldn't as a podcast host. Rhetoric consistency is not the same as being consistently repetitive. 20 episodes is quite a lot you know, and in many cases you cannot differentiate between episodes. That's besides the point though: The point is that he does not get into into the guests' enough (even though he claims to do so). Instead, he asks a question, lets the guest answer it (sometimes barely), and abruptly starts talking about his experiences. In many cases there are no follow up questions, it feels that deep down Simon just does not care.
And what is this rhetorical consistency you're talking about anyway? Can you name me one host who needs to use 10-20 minutes out of EVERY podcast to explain how their practice routine is and how they want to win so badly, in detail? That is in addition to cutting off and talking over people. Not saying there aren't good things in this podcast, but its no wonder that it has been received the way it's been.
