    A few weeks ago Tucker and Harvey were in Tahoe together. Sharing dinner and telling old stories. Tucker who just recently built his home in a shipping container and now rips through the world's mountain ranges has some great ones to tell.

Guilty Pleasure

My favorite part of every Friday is my walk with Coffee Buzz playing. The genuine friendship you guys share shows in each episode. The funny stuff y’all come up with has me looking like the crazy lady in the neighborhood as I literally laugh out loud most of the way I pause the show to answer each question before I listen to your answers because the questions are so good.

The MindStrong Podcasts are equally as delicious. Anyone who works with athletes, has a child in sports, or is pursuing personal betterment through an active lifestyle and mental preparation should listen to your program on the regular. Keep it coming! Grateful I found y’all.
