Top 5 Episodes of 2012

Listen live or download podcast

In 2012, The Strategy Sessions radio show featured the nation’s top thinkers and influencers on entrepreneurship, nonprofit organizations, communities, women’s and youth issues, and other topics. From disaster planning to Small Business Saturday, our listeners tuned into our show in a big way – we have surpassed our half million mark.

As more than 500,000 listened live, or downloaded the podcast, our guests have added considerable value to conversations on current events, and issues that impact us perennially. I’m grateful to Blog Talk Radio for making me a Featured Host, raising our visibility.

Following is a list of our top 5 shows in 2012 (the most live/podcast listens). We hope you will continue to tune in, and call in with your questions and comments. If there’s a topic you would like us to consider, email our producers at talkback@ksgsc.com, or Tweet @KesiStribling.
