Culture Cast: Unpacking Blogs with Podcasts

Organizational culture Personal leadership Podcast


Key Point: Our readers have a relentless appetite for learning and have made our blog a regular part of their continuous learning journey. We are grateful for that. Over the last few years, podcasts (in addition to blogs), have become a rapidly growing and important channel for personal development and entertainment. Subsequently, we have decided to supplement our regular blogs with our podcasts that further “unpack” subject matters introduced in our blogs. Our thousands of readers have expressed much interest in our blog topics. Ideally, they will feel compelled to become regular podcast listeners as well, where these blog subjects will be thoroughly discussed and explored; what we describe as “unpacking.”

Our podcast is called Culture Cast: Conversations on Leadership. To make the podcast more conversational and engaging, I have invited an experienced leader and strategist, Lynette Turner, to join me as a co-host. Lynette (check her out at is a leadership/culture expert with a superb strategic practice focused on 3 “Cs”: Confident. Collaborative. Contributing. 

My readers know that my principle underpinning is the Character Triangle: Self-Accountability, Respect, and Abundance. With these combined elements as a filter and framework, we jointly feel that we can further engage our listeners in vigorously exploring the broad topics of organization culture and leadership.

The stimulant will come from targeted blogs that have sparked an additional interest in readers and subsequently inspire podcasts where we will dig deeper and unpack more.

Our promise to you is fresh, hard-hitting, practical insights forming the emerging social technology surrounding culture and leadership.

The available five podcasts represent a draft series. We are learning a lot on this journey of producing and publishing. Each episode runs between 25 and 35 minutes, and like all podcasts, you can listen when and where you like. They are now accessible on iTunes as well.

We would love to hear your feedback on these first five podcasts. Your comments will be used to enhance the content and approach for our official launch in February. These podcasts are for you, and we want you to be part of the success of them. 

Garrett and I will continue to publish blogs Tuesday and Fridays as we have for the past five years. And now, Lynette and I hope that our podcast will add an enjoyable listening adventure for your drive home, workout, or wherever you find some time for your important personal leadership development.

Podcasts in The Triangle,


One Millennial View: From Joe Rogan’s famed podcast, to multiple others involving business, sports, comedy, politics, crime… You name it. I have taken a deep dive into the podcasting world over the last year (in fact, as much as I love Spotify and listening to music, daily podcasts have more or less replaced my playlists). I’ve listened to the first group of Culture Cast, and can tell that it has the foundation to evolve into another great addition that will compete with my favorites. Listen for yourself.
