This podcast is a reminder that knowledge is power

Summit Podcast is an awesome podcast and resource for those looking to expand their minds. It’s really a great reminder that knowledge is power. What I love most about this though, is that it’s not someone talking AT you, but someone talking with you. It feels organic and authentic in the way they’re having conversations and talking about things. I love the diversity in guests as well as industries they have on the show. Too often podcasts pigenhole who is on their show, and the guys of Summit Podcast really go the extra mile in the diversity they have on the show. They have definitely fine tuned their podcasts since Season 1, and I appreciate the go-get it attitude of just making it happen. The relatability of the guests and how they interact is awesome. Keep up the great work! I can’t wait to see who else you guys bring on the show.
