    Fighting for the Very Soul of Farmingdale: Leadership in Elections - A Tiny Soapbox Show

    Fighting for the Very Soul of Farmingdale: Leadership in Elections - A Tiny Soapbox Show

    A very different episode of The Launchcast, but one of the most necessary if we're going to call ourselves a leadership podcast. The LaunchDad waxes poetic on what's going on in his hometown of Farmingdale, NY. This episode's small-town case study on the effects of politics in parenting and education is a topic that is being discussed in small towns and large cities across the country. The problem is, they crossed a parent with a microphone this time and George isn't standing for it. Tune in to this unconventional soapbox episode. A 10 minute disclaimer and explanation precedes the episode.

    Wrestling with Leadership - ”Life Changing” Joe Ocasio

    Wrestling with Leadership - ”Life Changing” Joe Ocasio

    There are two sides to this interview: the real story and the work. The real story is that George sits down with professional wrestler and personal trainer Joe Ocasio for an incredible, in-depth interview that delves into his story as a wrester, the art of wrestling and his journey to starting Joe's Results Zone. Now for the work: It's the matchup of the century as George "The LaunchDad" Andriopoulos (formerly known as Muscles Marinara) takes on FFW Heavyweight Champion (and tag team champion) "Life Changing" Joe Ocasio in a 90 minute iron man match and the leadership championship is on the line. It's gonna be a slobber-knocker so make sure to tune in!

    You don't have to be a wrestling fan to love this episode, but if you're into the WWE, AEW, FFW, NYWC, NXT, W.O.W. or anything else from the squared circle, you'll LOVE this one.

    Leadership Through Conscious Communication (Launchcast Profiles) - Jem Fuller

    Leadership Through Conscious Communication (Launchcast Profiles) - Jem Fuller

    Nothing to see here, just two dudes covered in tribal tattoos who are obsessed with leadership and both spoke (at different times) at the same TEDx in Northern Ireland, but here's the catch...one's from Australia and the other is from New York. The LaunchDad sits with this week's Launchcast Leadership Profile guest, Jem Fuller, and the two talk about Jem's incredible and unconventional journey to leadership. Dive in, this is a good one.

    Leading With Reading (Launchcast Profiles) - Danny Brassell, PhD

    Imagine taking a trip on the Reading Rainbow. Only it's not a TV show, it's real life and it's not LeVar Burton, it's our guest Danny Brassell.

It's our first every Launchcast Profiles episode where we do short profiles and big leaders. Buckle up...leadership awaits.

Exceptional

This podcast is phenomenal. George is such a well spoken and well educated host with an incredible story, and he provides a platform for other leaders to share their story and help others. I cannot recommend this podcast enough!

Amateur not worth the time

I was looking forward local Farmingdale or Long Island podcasts to give this a try. O my gosh it’s unbearable to listen to. I tried pieces of a couple episodes to give it a shot because I love local stuff. But man- hard pass. Don’t waste your time like I did.

A Well-Oiled Machine!

This podcast is a well-oiled machine! George is a terrific interviewer by the way he keeps it tight and relevant. Enjoy listening to this while I’m dropping the kids off at school. Positive way to start our days! 😉👍
