Ep. 61 // The Best Place to Go: Jerry Risley

Jerry started his driving career with Prairie Farms and left Nussbaum and the road behind after 34 years. Listen in on the conversation as Jerry talks through the highlights of his career as a driver. From the hours of alone time over the road to the joy of arriving home to his family each week, Jerry reminisces over the years. Nussbaum is losing an excellent driver to retirement, but Jerry is most deserving of this time to enjoy, rest, and love his family. Enjoy this brand new video...


Ep. 60 // In It for the Long Haul: Dennis Carson

Not one for bouncing around, Dennis has only worked for two trucking companies in his life – and we’re pretty sure he only left the first one because it closed. In a time where working short job stints is regular, it’s refreshing to hear of Dennis’s commitment to long-term employment and the relationships built from longevity.

Ep. 58 // How to Survive a Pandemic

What do we do in this time of uncertainty? Are you panicking and shouldering worry about the future? Are you consuming every piece of information on COVID-19 you can find? If the past week or two has left you worn down, helpless, and feeling like a sheep without a shepherd, stop. Listen to this message from Nussbaum Chaplain Jim Revelle. Jim gives you six truths to focus on in a time when our attention is being pulled in every direction. Take a breath, press play, and let’s focus on what...


Ep. 57 // Girl on a Rock: Kirsten Gee

The life-saving voice you hear overnight made a day-time trip into Nussbaum. From juggling countless hats in a 12-hour shift in overnight operations to packing a 30-pound canoe around for fun on vacation, Kirsten Gee is a multi-talented gem at Nussbaum who never fails to surprise. She’s a witness to the terrors of the night, but she’s also the spot of light in the darkness that helps you get through. This long-haired Barbie Doll blondie is one of the most adventuresome outdoorsmen you’ll...


Ep. 56 // Fire in the Commode: Colonel Jay Clason

He’s back with even more eyebrow-raising hilarity and deep-rooted conviction. Colonel Jay Clason willingly jumped back in the hot seat at Terminal Exchange to finish the tale from his last episode’s cliffhanger. Plus, he’s got more war stories and advice to share. In the slush of winter, Jay questions why you learn to put chains on in a warm, dry environment? And he’s got a more realistic way to train. And with so many stories to tell, we jump from tire chains to an encounter with a North...


Ep. 55 // From Over-the-Road to Over-the-Phone

Are you settling into an office chair today? Or are you manning the driver’s seat? Our guests are right at home in both places. We welcome Maya Hernandez, Brian Johnson, and Chris Chaney to sit down with us in this episode of Terminal Exchange. These three drivers turned driver managers are the breath of fresh air you’ve been waiting for at Terminal Exchange. They share a full-circle perspective of Nussbaum from the heart of a driver and the thoughts of a driver manager. But what brought...


Ep. 54 // The Full 5 Seconds: Jeff Jackson

We’re back this week with an even-keel trainer and Road Captain that also can’t be trusted with a taser. Jeff Jackson inspires with a pep talk on Nussbaum as a company and how proud he is to be a part of it but also spices up the conversation with stories from four years in the Marine Corps and 15 years as a Firearms Instructor for the nearby Pekin Police Department. We’ll talk trucking (of course), but we’ll also sit entranced as Jeff relives the scary moments of law enforcement alongside...


Ep. 53 // Mike Stumreiter's Class Bee License

Jump back in with Mike Stumreiter this week as we buzz through a conversation on he and his wife’s new hobby and small business – beekeeping. It will not bee boring, and the bee puns are actually surprisingly minimal. What started as a battle royalé with wildflowers turned into a welcoming of 20,000 bees into his eternally flowering backyard. Enjoy this buzzworthy episode, from the “ah-ha!” moments to the connection Mike makes between beekeeping and trucking. You’ll learn and laugh...


Ep. 52 // Breaking the Law With Mike Stumreiter

Happy New Year! Kick off the new decade with a two-part series from Nussbaum driver Mike Stumreiter. In part one, Mike laughs through his “young and dumb” days of flying by the seat of his pants across the country, foregoing logbooks, and running heavy – really heavy. But before long, the tone changes, the banter slows, and a haunting story emerges. Ignite your humanity as Mike relives the reckless days of his youth up to the gut-wrenching climax that is sure to make you catch your...
