Important words and lessons

Great conversation with Jay Chaudry. Sounds like a real friendship to me. He seems very grounded given his wealth and success. Jay provides important lessons about success and what it means to be happy in life.

Yes! I have longed for a show with just Scott

This is one of the best journalists I have known. I trust his judgment, as he challenges others and does not take anything at face value. His research and understanding is unparalleled. I appreciate how he shares information in a way that teaches me facts, history and current happenings.
I have missed seeing Scott on a daily basis since I moved to The Central Coast. Now I get to hear him on his own podcast.
