If you're in the charitable sector, you'll want to subscribe!

Brady Josephson does a fantastic job in his very professional podcast pulling out the best nuggets from his guests, which run the gamut from charities to platforms to agencies active in the social good space. Lots of great topics, and some amazing guests.

Of course I'm biased, but I'd recommend you give Ep27 a listen! :)
