The surprising power of podcasting with Catherine O'Connell

I’m thrilled to have the wonderful Catherine O'Connell on the show this week for a bit of a trip down memory lane as well as a fun discussion about what she’s been up to recently the surprising things that have happened because of that. We have been working together on launching her show “Lawyer on Air” of which I am the Producer and Show Manager as well. It is a privilege to be part of this show coming to fruition and helping more voices that we don’t usually hear from have a platform to be heard.
