Fascinating and open conversations.

This podcast is a real treat. Weems has clearly parlayed his skill and training in both ‘for profit’ and ‘non profit’ contexts into a unique perspective that allows for fascinating conversations. A curious and open mind that engages with his guests in delightful ways.
