Great podcast

Been out of the industry for a while. That being said great insights for any guest related industry.

Episode 9 surprise...

Starting off the episode with Heon was definitely a gamble. I was skeptical, but Meeker was able to reel him in a and keep him on track. If it weren’t for his interviewing acumen this would have gone off the tracks very quickly. Kudos to SAM for taking a chance.

carl don't care ,

Excellent Ski and business content!

Show provides some great insight into the winter sports industry from many points of view as well as an opportunity to think about ones career and role within the industry as well. Fun show for being all about business!
