The creation of The Talking Company was inspired by the desire for more communication. We hope to be able to provide inspiring interviews that focus on human to human interaction. Alongside weekly interviews, we will be discussing current events, sports, and music - all in the scope of a college student. Our goal is to get people engaged in more conversation, to better ourselves, and the world, one conversation at a time.

R.I.P George Floyd
Tragedy has struck Minneapolis in a major way over the past couple of days. George Floyd was killed by a police officer on Tuesday, May 26th, and peaceful protests have turned into looting, fires, and chaos. Suntina Spehar joins Jaelen and Johnny as they go in detail about what exactly happened over the past couple of days as well as their experiences at the scene of the destruction.
**Through Our Lens Teaser**
This episode is a teaser to The Talking Company's new podcast, Through Our Lens. In this podcast, Johnny Wedl and Seth Morem will discuss current worldly events, specifically in the United States and the United Kingdom. Our goal is to create a podcast discussing headline news in the eyes of a college student as well as build a greater worldly perspective for all of our listeners. Stay tuned for weekly episodes on Wednesday mornings!
Ep. 22 - Saint John's professor Bob Bell talks travel, his books, and more
On this episode, Jaelen and I had the pleasure of interviewing a 1994 Johnnie graduate who found his way back to Saint Johns and has been teaching finance over the past 10 years. This individual has been around the world and back, he has worked in Washington with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and he even worked on Wall Street for a number of years. In this podcast, Jaelen and I uncover our guest’s experiences in traveling the world, the books he has already written and the ones he plans to write, and we were even lucky enough to receive some valuable advice that everybody can benefit from. It is a great honor to introduce this very special guest, Mr. Bob Bell - enjoy the episode everybody.
The three of us experienced some technical difficulties in the middle of the episode so we apologize for the mid-flight turbulence.
Ep. 21 - Meg McMahon talks writing + time overseas + TTC origins
Top of the morning/afternoon/evening ya crazies,
This lovely episode contains stories told by Meg and her experiences as a writer and (potentially) future author. Meg talks about how meditating and dreaming can tell a lot about a person's mental state while Jaelen and Johnny ramble on about lucid dreams. In Meg's time abroad, she spent a lot of time on her own and she tells us about her experiences with that and how a lot of value can come from time alone. To end the show, Meg asked us about the origins of The Talking Company in addition to our last Christmas question before the big day! (Dec. 25th ... Duh)
**OH OH OH, lastly, 2020 is going to be a MASSIVE year. Jae and Johnny talk goals towards the end of the episode so make sure to stick around for that.**
Love you guys.
