    Erick Poston: The mission and Story Behind Oakley’s Infinite Hero Foundation

Real and relevant

This powerhouse team of Barb and Dave gives a voice to topics in a real, relevant, and in your face way, that is often missing today. Their leadership and voices need to be heard by many. I’ve listened to this podcast many times and it never fails to add value to my life.

Good conversation, great insight

I was listening to this podcast before the Pandemic, but now it’s my time in the mornings with coffee, positive stories, great perspective, and I love it. I always leave feeling inspired, feeling more connected to other people’s journeys, pains, victories and love for life and their fellow American.
