    34: Connecting People with Lyndsay Westby-Gibson

    34: Connecting People with Lyndsay Westby-Gibson

    At the center of the Naval Warfare Development Command and its innovation mission is a connector who seems to know everyone in the innovation world. My guest today is Lyndsay Westby-Gibson, who has helped connect me with innovators and great guests in the past. We talk about what's going on over on the East Coast, and why MCPON is visiting NWDC later this month (we like to think it's because he loves the podcast).

Where was this when I was on Active Duty?

Well, I retired in 2006, that might explain it. Outstanding production values, the audio is very balanced which makes the podcast easier to listen to in a car and focus on the guest/topic for the week.

A must for USN

This is full of great ideas in and out of work. I like how they challenge the normal ways to improve things

Awesome military podcast. Wish there were more like it. The ability to ask questions, evaluate, critique is critical for growth in a establishment like the US Navy.
