Fighting for the Very Soul of Farmingdale: Leadership in Elections - A Tiny Soapbox Show

A very different episode of The Launchcast, but one of the most necessary if we're going to call ourselves a leadership podcast. The LaunchDad waxes poetic on what's going on in his hometown of Farmingdale, NY. This episode's small-town case study on the effects of politics in parenting and education is a topic that is being discussed in small towns and large cities across the country. The problem is, they crossed a parent with a microphone this time and George isn't standing for it. Tune in to this unconventional soapbox episode. A 10 minute disclaimer and explanation precedes the episode.

Wrestling with Leadership - ”Life Changing” Joe Ocasio

There are two sides to this interview: the real story and the work. The real story is that George sits down with professional wrestler and personal trainer Joe Ocasio for an incredible, in-depth interview that delves into his story as a wrester, the art of wrestling and his journey to starting Joe's Results Zone. Now for the work: It's the matchup of the century as George "The LaunchDad" Andriopoulos (formerly known as Muscles Marinara) takes on FFW Heavyweight Champion (and tag team champion) "Life Changing" Joe Ocasio in a 90 minute iron man match and the leadership championship is on the line. It's gonna be a slobber-knocker so make sure to tune in!

You don't have to be a wrestling fan to love this episode, but if you're into the WWE, AEW, FFW, NYWC, NXT, W.O.W. or anything else from the squared circle, you'll LOVE this one.

Leadership Through Conscious Communication (Launchcast Profiles) - Jem Fuller

Nothing to see here, just two dudes covered in tribal tattoos who are obsessed with leadership and both spoke (at different times) at the same TEDx in Northern Ireland, but here's the catch...one's from Australia and the other is from New York. The LaunchDad sits with this week's Launchcast Leadership Profile guest, Jem Fuller, and the two talk about Jem's incredible and unconventional journey to leadership. Dive in, this is a good one.

Imagine taking a trip on the Reading Rainbow. Only it's not a TV show, it's real life and it's not LeVar Burton, it's our guest Danny Brassell.

The Junkyard Prodigy - Orville Davis

Back from winter hiatus and ready to roll, The Launchcast gets back to basics with an in-studio interview that does not disappoint! Sometimes we focus so much on legacy that we get complacent about innovating old ideas...and sometimes legacy allows us to disrupt an age-old idea and reinvent an industry. The LaunchDad is joined by Orville Davis, CEO of Scrap-It! Technologies and Junk Removal. Orville started as the product of a junkyard and wound up revolutionizing the junk industry through legacy and innovation. Listen up today, folks...you might learn something!

Auld Lang Syne - A Tiny New Year’s Soapbox Show

It's our final episode of 2021 and what better way to say Happy New Year than with a Tiny Soapbox Show from the LaunchDad himself? We're talking New Year's resolutions and looking inward at our own accountability and responsibilities to make those resolutions come true. We're talking about honoring those from our past in order to move forward in the future. We're talking about leaving the excuses behind and just doing the damn thing. Buckle up, buttercup...this one gets real before we slow it down and get reflective going into 2022.
