Solid

Gerry is the consummate pro as a host and he helps bring out stories from well-known guests who usually don’t discuss themselves or their experiences. Great podcast that moves and is just the right duration.

Great listen!

Enjoyed the discussion and storytelling Gerry had with Jim Schellinger. I can relate to the upbringing as I too lived at home throughout college. Jim was a "townie" in South Bend, I was a "commuter" in Cincy drove from my parents house and became excellent at parellel parking. Loved humble beginings and later the travel piece. Plus, Indiana writes the story "fly over" at your own financial peril. Very relatable stories by Jim as mined by Gerry. Well done!
