One of our guests suggested we change the name of the show to more accurately convey what it is we do. Her suggestion was "Four People Talking at a Table". That does pretty much sum it up!

Legacy Matters has proven that conversations are still important. On our show, we the hosts do no research on the guests we invite to be a part of our show. Every two weeks we sit down with a stranger and learn their story. We ask questions, sometimes serious and sometimes silly, as we get to know these strangers and start down the road to friendship.

Everyone has a legacy! Join Sam, Marc and Kate every two weeks for another amazing episode of Legacy Matters!

    Deron Trovall: An open conversation about loss.

    Deron Trovall joins us to talk about the loss of his wife, followed shortly by the loss of his son. With much love and support, we listen as he shares his story. Deron is resilient and hopes that talking through his loss will increase awareness and perhaps help others through their journeys.
    As always, we do manage to find some lighter moments on this show. Deron has lived a life of humor and happiness, and while these losses are with him at all times, he can't help but find ways to enjoy what he still has.

    If you or someone you love is struggling, please reach out for help by dialing 988.

    Kim Witczak: The Accidental Advocate

    Kim Witczak: The Accidental Advocate

    When Kim Witczak lost her husband Woody to suicide, something didn’t add up. Woody wasn’t a troubled soul and he’d had no history with mental illness or self harm. But what he did have was a recent prescription to antidepressants and some very troubling side effects.


    Lisa became an accidental advocate for the dangers of off label prescription use and better labeling of those potential dangers.


    Now that’s the first half- a little heavy but very interesting and informative.


    The second half is Jenny Jones, John Wayne Bobbit and Joey Buttafucco, all wrapped up into one very funny show. Kim has enough heart and stories to fill several episodes!

    Andrea Storlie: Owner of Nail Ninja

    Andrea Storlie, owner of Nail Ninja in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park, sits down with us to share her experiences in the nail arts industry. Part therapist and part artist, Andrea clearly knows how to execute on a vision! We all share stories about working a variety of customer service related jobs. Of course we get deep into the highs and the lows of life, reality vs perception, conspiracy theories and why you should never trust the Ocean.


    Andrea also shares with us her vision for a video podcast detailing her work. Don’t even try to steal the idea, you are just not Andrea!

Keep em coming

I enjoy how you get to know what your guests do but most of the conversation revolves around who your guests are and how you all relate to each other. You all seem genuinely interested in visiting and not putting any one person on the spot. Humanity feels pretty good listening to you all visit. Thank you for creating these!
