The art of conversation

I recently discovered this podcast and have been pleasantly surprised. There seems to be an ever increasing number of podcasts available for us to peruse. Generally this can only be a positive, information and knowledge are power! Sadly there are a few that lack substance and/or quality.

Fortunately, Behind The Shield doesn’t fall into that category. The art of the long form conversation isn’t something you’ll typically hear much these days.

Not only are the guests high quality, interesting and educational...but the host actual allows them to speak and tell their unique stories. It’s been a great addition to the podcast library. Great job keep facilitating the knowledge sharing entertainment!

Transformative storytelling

I laughed, I cried, I was inspired! This podcast truly has the power to bring trauma to the surface where it can be acknowledged, addressed and overcome. Those who have the courage to share their lived experience are true heroes giving hope that things can, and will get better!
