Must listen!

I am a new convert to this podcast after listening for just a short time! This podcast has what is needed for a well put together program… Structure, great content and very easy to listen to. Most importantly, these gentlemen really seem to have a genuine way of engaging with their guest and each other. This is not a podcast competition to see who can out do the other one. They are knowledgeable in their topics yet seem to have a teachable spirit that shows in them wanting to hear what others say as well. I highly recommend subscribing and making this podcast a part of your listing schedule!

Very insightful and interesting business show

Joe and Travis have so many interesting topics and discussions around issues we all face in business. They don't just focus in on nuts and bolts like so many podcasts. This show goes deep into the human elements of the business leader and his or her affects on the business.

The discussions ask the questions we haven't thought to ask or are unwilling to answer. Good job guys on keeping me interested!
