Makes Me Think

Good conversations cause you to linger in a thought. Markus allows his guests and listeners to linger and ponder insightful topics. A month ago I was listening to one of the Spiritual Life and Leadership podcasts. An idea was mentioned in response to a question that Markus raised that continues to cause me to think and reflect. Markus brings out insight for life from his guests.
