Inspiring podcast

I always look forward to episodes. I am making my way through all of the back episodes and they are so good!! They are fun, conversational and filled with opportunities for growth. The guests and the host go out of their way to continue the discussion after the podcast with listeners. It's one of my favorite podcasts right now.
