'The People I Know' is a conversational podcast. Each guest will be someone who I know, admire and have a lot to learn from. The podcast is committed to showing the power of candid conversations and that ordinary people can have extraordinary things to say. Some music that my guests and I are into will be thrown in there as well ;-)
