QUICK HITS: Seizing the Opportunity with Former Catholic University of America Safety Miniard Culpep

Q: What the heck is a QUICK HIT?!

A: In this week's interview with Miniard we took a different approach. Sometimes our day-to-day doesn't allow for us to enjoy a full forty-five minute podcast. Things come up, we get distracted and we miss out on valuable information that maybe we could have put into action that very day.


QUICK HITS are abbreviated interviews that fit in a fifteen minute or less time frame. You can now get your daily dose of What's Next in between classes, on your short commute to work, or quickly on your lunch break. These interviews although shorter are no less impactful than our featured stories. Simply put, we drilled down to the key points quicker for your listening convenience!
