Terrific for Current or Aspiring Air Force Leaders

This podcast is a great resource to anyone currently serving or aspiring to serve as an officer in the USAF (or any branch of service). Colin and Reed have poured their heart and soul into this project and the superb content of each episode is a tribute to their efforts. I would highly recommend this to anyone. I look forward to each new episode every week!

The meeting episode....🙄

I definitely cringed when an episode about meetings popped into my podcast app. HOWEVER!! It was a great episode and loved the discussion. You guys have been doing great work and even in these episodes that folks might not feel inclined to hit play on, there is tremendous value within. So do it! Hit play! Love the show, would love to hear more of my people (13S-Space nerds). 👍👍
