    Leo Cummings and Todd Cate: Black Dude White Dude

    The Black Dude White Dude Podcast features in-depth discussions on a variety of topics from the differing perspectives of two best friends. From social justice and fatherhood to the NBA and working out, Conway natives Leo Cummings and Todd Cate are tackling it all.

    “These are conversations that we would normally have,” Cate said. “We started asking ourselves, can we add value to the community around us by having these conversations in a method in which people can listen to it, and I think the answer is yes.”

    Cummings and Cate joined host Zach Parker for a bro talk episode of The Ghidotti Podcast on everything from the origin of Black Dude White Dude to the never-ending Michael Jordan vs. LeBron James debate, plus their best Joe Rogan impersonation. You won’t want to miss it.

    Travis Napper: Arkansas Tourism

    Travis Napper: Arkansas Tourism

    Travis Napper brings experience and enthusiasm to his role as Arkansas’s newest Director of Tourism, but the COVID-19 pandemic has presented its fair share of challenges with travel restrictions, social distancing and self quarantines.

    “I started on April Fool’s Day, so maybe the joke is on me,” Napper said. “Starting a new job in tourism in the middle of a pandemic with all the staff at home is definitely one of those stories that you wouldn’t believe had we said this six months ago.”

    Napper shared more with host Natalie Ghidotti on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including how the Natural State’s outdoor attractions have helped it remain a destination for travelers, the outside perspective he brings as a Louisiana native and how he and Stacy Hurst are working together in their new roles.

    Dr. Ben Sells: Take Care, Tigers

    As a new school year rapidly approaches, many colleges and universities across the country have already announced plans for holding classes online this fall due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia remains committed to having an on-campus experience for all students.

    “I have confidence in people at Ouachita and our process, and we’re moving in that direction until there’s reason that we can’t,” said OBU President Dr. Ben Sells. “So much of how this is going to work will come down to students, faculty and staff being responsible, and we’re challenging people to rise to the occasion.”

    Dr. Sells shared more with host Zach Parker on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including why the on-campus experience is so important at OBU, the course of action should a student test positive for COVID-19 and the ongoing discussion of how to preserve one of the school’s most sacred fall traditions, Tiger Tunes.

    Sarah Catherine Gutierrez: Then and Now

    Sarah Catherine Gutierrez: Then and Now

    Given the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the unemployment rate and stock market, many people are now placing more emphasis on saving money for the future, something Sarah Catherine Gutierrez has seen firsthand as CEO of Aptus Financial.

    “We have used this time to talk about emergency funds and for the first time, it feels like people are taking us up on it,” Gutierrez said. “I think there could be some really amazing, lasting outcomes from this if people just put a little more thought into the long-term automation of some of these practices.”

    Gutierrez, a previous guest in February 2019, shared more with host Natalie Ghidotti on the latest Then and Now episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including an update on her upcoming book and the Save10 Challenge.

    Ken Clark - Then and Now

    Ken Clark - Then and Now

    With the COVID-19 pandemic, a 14 percent unemployment rate and the upcoming presidential election, it’s no surprise that 2020 has brought a wave of fear and anxiety to many people. Chenal Family Therapy CEO Ken Clark introduced a solution in the form of gratitude with the Thanks a Billion Project.

    “Everybody was scared and we couldn’t tell what was real fear and what was blown out of proportion,” said Clark. “ The project emerged out of the belief that we as a collective group are going to solve this problem a lot better if we are solving from a place of gratitude as opposed to self-preservation.”

    Clark, a previous guest in August 2018, shared more with host and Thanks a Billion Project partner Natalie Ghidotti on the latest Then and Now episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including his thoughts on the ongoing discussion about race in our country and how he’s guided his team of therapists during this difficult time.

    Chuck Livingston: Hooten's Arkansas Football

    Chuck Livingston: Hooten's Arkansas Football

    For fans in the Natural State, Hooten’s Arkansas Football magazine is the go-to source for team previews across all levels in high school and college. And while the COVID-19 pandemic has left the status of this year’s season up in the air, the Hooten’s team remains committed to delivering the same product that Arkansans have come to expect.

    “There’s going to be a lot more projection in this year’s magazine,” said staff writer Chuck Livingston. “Without a true spring and summer, it’s harder to see that progress that you would normally see in the weight room and on the field. It’s been different in a lot of ways, but we’re making the best of it just like the coaches and players and we’re optimistic.”

    Livingston shared more about the upcoming season with host Zach Parker on the latest episode of The Ghidotti Podcast, including how central Arkansas has become the hub of premier high school football and why Razorback fans should be excited about first-year head coach Sam Pittman.
