SC Business Review
I continue to enjoy listening to Morning Edition & local programs like SC Business Review. I was very happy to find podcasts since my work schedule made it difficult for me to listen live. I’ve learned so much about SC businesses/industries. I have registered for a couple video conferences of the Managerial Insights - great partnership and content. Thank you Mike Switzer & SC Public Radio. Stay safe
