Great People. Inspiring Conversations.
Podcast Guest Appearances
Discover some of my favorite podcasts where I’ve recently been honored as a guest speaker.
Do you want to be the best leader possible to help your mission thrive? Then never stop learning. Always seek out and surround yourself with good people who know more than you do.
This doesn’t always mean one-on-one conversations, though I’m always a fan of them. Inspirational books (like Live Large!) and podcasts are an amazing way to learn from fellow leaders.
The following highlights some of my favorite podcasts, on which I’ve been honored to speak recently. Take a listen. Follow these leaders. You won’t be disappointed.

It is a story-driven podcast, during which Sarah shares conversations with people just like you who are on fire... for the right things. For beautiful things. For things that matter.

5. Bulldog and Friends with Todd Buller
The description of Todd Buller’s podcast ‘Bulldog and Friends’ is right up my alley, “A podcast about lifelong friendships, opportunities, mishaps and adventures along the way.”
Mishaps and adventures? Boy have I had my fair share! Some of them even occurred with Todd. He was in my Young Life group 40-plus years ago. Boy, was it an entertaining pleasure to join him on his podcast.

On her lively and powerful podcast, ‘My Michelle Live,’ Michelle Mendoza explores a wide range of topics and stories you don’t always hear in the mainstream or elite media. As she puts it, she's "a faith girl who's fun, feisty and finding the God story in every issue of the day."
