What’s on your bucket list? Well, when I started this project in May 2010, Bob Edwards was someone I hoped I’d have the opportunity to be in conversation with at some point when we made it! Not sure we’ve made it yet, but he’s my guest this week! Check off one more thing off the list!
What an honor and privilege it was to have him join me as a guest!
Enjoy the conversation!
