The Dan Smolen Podcast takes listeners on relevant journeys to meet thought leaders who share their methods for achieving ‘meaningful work.’ I recommend that you tune in while driving to work!
There are a lot of dry career podcasts out there, especially the corporate ones. Not this podcast. Dan uses his headhunter experience and good sense of humor to discuss his guests’ amazing work stories. I’m in corporate talent search and I make a point to listen to this terrific podcast. Keep ’em coming!
Very well executed and interesting to listen to.
