Kayla and I loved chatting with Madi! This was such a fun, easy going, and professional interview that we can’t wait to do it again some day. Her communication was prompt and the video was posted so quickly. Highly recommend working with Madi!

As someone who does a lot of interviewing I have to say what I really appreciated the most about being an interviewee on Madilynn’s YouTube Channel is her attention to detail, not just with the questions she asks but the way she listens and follows up based on what you say. Some interviews are just here’s your question, here’s your answer, here’s the next question, etc or uncomfortable questions and silence. With Madilynn, it feels like a conversation that is never forced, never awkward, and yet still very much aiming for a direction and makes sense to talk about. You also feel her energy and enthusiasm, which in turns makes you feel like a star or at least somebody important to her and I think that resonates with the audience that views it too. I love that she does deep dive into the research and reads the books ahead of time which allows for her to know what direction you can go with various talking points without having to worry about explaining or triggering a spoiler alert. It’s that level of engagement between the interviewer and interviewee that leaves you feeling like that was more than worth it.
