with Eitan Chitayat

Whether through work or at play, I’ve had the good fortune of meeting some prolific people. Some are friends. Some are colleagues. Some are clients. Some are acquaintances. On ‘I’m That’, we have a chat about who they are, why they do what they do, the things that they love, the things they hate, mistakes they’ve made and victories they’ve had. Maybe deep. Possibly profound. Potentially funny. But always honest.
