HR Talk Radio

I listen to Laurie's podcast, "Punk Rock HR" in the car on family road trips. Her views and prospective always keep my mind active -- which is perfect for driving. Check it out! She's like my kids' version of the "talk radio" that my dad made us listen to but he was driving so he ruled the speakers.
