In this episode, I talk with Pedro Brown Hoffmeister about so many things! To say this was a great conversation is a massive understatement. Pedro is such an insightful human being and excellent storyteller. This one is definitely a can’t-miss conversation.
If you enjoy it even half as much as I did, I would appreciate if you would like, comment, subscribe. It would help me out immensely. Also, if you’re listening to the podcast version, if you could review it on Apple Podcasts, etc. that would also help me and help other folks find it. Thanks so much!
