Several months back, Lewis & Clark staff recommended a variety of podcasts as part of Staff Picks. You can find these recommendations Here.

Sarah runs a unique consulting business which focuses on using personal strengths for success and connection, but she also takes a close look at storytelling and how the stories we tell affect our lives. In fact, Sarah even wrote a book about it called Your Stories Don’t Define You, How You Tell Them Will. In conjunction with Sarah’s consulting business, she produces a podcast which she has been known to record right here in the library using our private study rooms! Are you interested in listening to Sarah’s podcast? Check it out at her website, Elkins Consulting. It’s always great to see Sarah in the library and especially exciting knowing that she is using our space in such a meaningful way.
Very cool beans.
