As I have mentioned before, I’m totally digging the Rich Roll Podcast. Just ask my wife — every time I listen to one, the first words out of my mouth are “you have got to listen to this interview.” The podcasts assemble a wide variety of people from athletes, coaches, entrepreneurs, etc. Very fascinating.
I love this interview. So inspiring and insightful.
