I have expanded SmartercoachingLLC website to include episodes of two podcasts that I did and am doing. I started a podcast interviewing people involved in sports and coaching, but I stopped it when I started a new job that was taking a lot of time (plus doing a podcast for it). The episodes are available on the Smartercoaching podcast page and through Apple Podcast. A second podcast is a monthly one that I do in conjunction with the US Center for Coaching Excellence (USCCE) aimed at coach educators and developers. Those can be found on Apple Podcast and also on a YouTube channel I started.

As if that is not enough, I am soon launching a new podcast with the working title "Out of Curiosity". This podcast is more general interest and will include a short "Thoughts of the Day" at the start of each episode plus a guest who just plain interests me. I will be creating a new page for it too.
