Jesco Lohan On The Podcast


It’s insanely fun to do them (especially if you’re the one being interviewed ?), and you get to share A TON of great information in a really short amount of time.

This time around I got to speak with Mike Indovina on his podcast, along side such great previous guests as Sylvia Massy, Nick Raskulinecz and David Bottrill.

I think you’re going to get a lot out of this one!
