HR Famous! The Podcast is now Live! Episode 1

I’ve personally been on nearly 100 different podcasts as a guest! I get asked, and I’m like, yeah! Let’s do this! I mean who doesn’t want to hear me on a podcast!?

For years, I’ve been told by folks, “you should start a podcast!” But, like every great HR Pro, I wanted to wait to make sure this podcast thing was really going to be a thing! So, I checked my iPhone 5s and it says that podcasts are now a thing!

I’m super excited to launch our weekly podcast – HR Famous!

Want to know what “HR Famous” means? Go listen to the podcast! That’s how it works. I don’t write it and tell you, you listen!

HR Famous is a weekly podcast by me and two of my great friends, Kris Dunn and Jessica Lee. The three of us have had a decade long friendship and all that time we would catch up on calls and text chats, and we felt, people would love listening to these conversations! At least, we had fun on these conversations!

Go have a listen and let me know what you think!
