Marta started her podcast, Marta on the Move, because she loves getting to know people, sitting down, and having real candid and comedic conversations. She covers a ton of interesting topics including board games, food, drinks, history, and everything in between.  S

 

She is also an experienced solo traveler, having done tomb excavations in Sicily, restored a 10th-century castle in France, lived on a boat for whale and dolphin conservation, helped build houses for the homeless in Portugal, cleaned up the coral reefs, and treasure dove near Key West.

 

In this episode, we discuss growing through travel, Marta’s brush with death, and how to interview well.

Jen Briney hosts Congressional Dish, a podcast covering the legislation that passes through Congress.

 

If you are an American, you are your Representative’s boss and Jen’s show will help you judge their job performance. Using the information from Congressional Dish, you can decide if their actions represent you and choose whether to re-hire or fire them. Jen does this by explaining complicated legislation in a way anyone can understand and exposing Representatives who accept legal bribes (“campaign contributions”) from industries that benefit from their bills.

 

Her tenacity and intellect are surpassed only by her passion for better governance and representation.

 

Jennifer’s Challenge; Communicate with your Congressman. Phone calls are most effective.

Kevin started his career as a logistics officer for SWAT. This experience gave him insight into the criminal justice world and he soon found that training SWAT teams was the best way to reduce use of force while ensuring the national security of our country. Fulcrum Tactical was born out of that idea and within 18 months he took it from a charity to a for-profit company.

 

He started investing in startups on the side but focused on Fulcrum Tactical and his new venture, Fulcrum Farms, a sustainable farm producing high quality meat and eggs for families and restaurants in the Chicagoland area. After 6 years, Kevin sold Fulcrum Tactical and moved on to investing in startups full time by starting Fulcrum Investing.

 

Kevin’s Challenge; Set aside designated time every day to plan your next step.
