Jerry Leighton ,

Great to see a hometown guys succeed in life and career

I remember Demoine Roberts From high school. We both graduated in 1986 from KentRidge in Kent, a suburb near Seattle Washington. I find it fascinating to see how his life and career has blossomed over the last 30+ years. The people he has interacted with that he interviews in these podcasts are very inspirational and entertaining. Keep up the good work and please make some more of these podcasts available.
