A new go-to

Don’s voice is smooth and soft like velvet! Listening to this makes me feel as if I am sitting fireside in a high-backed leather chair, watching as a master interviewer deftly brings forth nugget upon nugget of magical value.

I know this podcast will not only pique new thoughts but also did into some of the greatest lessons leadership and sports have to teach us.
