If you’d like to hear more about the things we believe in and care about, listen to our podcast The Assist.


An ‘assist’ is a term from basketball referring to a pass that leads directly to a teammate scoring.  What we love about this stat is that it is crediting one person for helping another person succeed. 


We believe deeply in the importance of helping others succeed.  In this podcast, Andy Crosbie and James Ogden pick a different concept each episode connected to helping others succeed and chew it over, with the help of various guests.

Find us on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and other mainstream podcast apps.
