Love this! Exceeded expectations!

I’m an aspiring sports reporter and have been following sholdmediagroup and sportsmedialife on Instagram for a long time now. When I first heard the teaser that a podcast was going to debut, I was so thrilled! The first episode checked all of the boxes: engaging host, credible/ inspiring guest speaker, and valuable lessons and anecdotes that every reporter loves to learn about. I’m such a fan of Taylor Shold and this whole organization. Can’t wait to hear future material!
