The beauty of podcasting lies in its ability to bring all of the best parts of information sharing together in an intimate and empowering experience.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the business and entrepreneur genres. Easily accessible programs combine the wisdom and insight from critically acclaimed authors and businesspeople and the intimate connection between speaker and listener into powerful, yet easily digestible sound bites.
Truly exceptional advice can come from people in every walk of life, and podcasts provide a convenient vessel by which a broad spectrum of passionate, outspoken people can come together through the sharing of information and ideas.
