Should I go or should I stay?
I am new to podcasts. I was browsing through the library and came upon this jewel. This coach on Demand podcast by Dr. Greg Ketchum has all the elements anyone could ask for. The podcast was laugh out loud humorous at the same time being very informative. I can understand how Dr. Greg became known as the “ Frazier of the Cubicle “ on the San Francisco news channels.
