Love the focus on our city!
Having lived in Cincinnati all my life, I continue to be proud of our history and recent strides. Growing up I was less proud to say I lived here but now fully support and promote us! The focus on business and culture gives a true view and special insight into what makes us tick and how hard many of us work to make Cincinnati great. Kudos to this podcast!
I really like how they talk these topics in the context of Cincy. It’s entertaining yet educational!
Entertaining and informing for non-business people!
I didn’t think I would enjoy this podcast because I’m not a business guru. But, the cohosts are great! I could listen all day long!
