Great Insight into Home Health/Home Care World!

Great opportunity to learn about how the industry operates from a high level. While this show is intended for those in the homecare/healthcare industry, I think consumers could benefit from the show as well. I enjoy how Tim is willing to probe a bit and not just ask softball questions to these industry leaders. I just subscribed and look forward to listening to most if not all future episodes.

Excellent!

Tim Mullaney kicked off the inaugural podcast with an excellent interview with Shelly Sun, co-founded of Brightstar. The pace was good and I was pleased that it did not waste a lot of time in pointless dialogue; something that is too common with other podcasts.
