Interviews in this week’s show delve into the backstories of each of our guests… more than we could include in this 45-minute show. Interviews that appear in the main episode focus on the topic of careers and entrepreneurial spirit. The extended interviews give you double the content and dig a bit deeper into the lives of our guests. We’re at a crossroads with our show and would love to hear your feedback. Should we extend the show and include longer, more in-depth interviews in the main show or should we maintain a shorter show with extended interviews available online?
