Dear Friends & Family.
It is my great pleasure to welcome aboard my friend and colleague Cliff W. Gilmore as an official co-host for The Ask podcast. For several episodes of The Ask Cliff and I have collaborated speak with celebrated activists like Behrouz Boochani for his book No Friends But the Mountains, courageous journalists like Anna Myroniuk and Igor Kossov and their work at The Kyiv Independent, respected authors like Sebastian Junger for his book Freedom and filmmakers like Doug Shultz for his Apple+ TV series The Line.
We are different people with different views and strong opinions – but what we share in common is a relentless curiosity and desire to question our assumptions and understanding of the issues and world around us. Cliff has greatly enriched The Ask since joining me as a guest co-host, and I could not be more excited and thankful to know what we will be moving forward as partners on The Ask moving forward. His biography on the website reads:
Cliff W. Gilmore, PhD, an honorably retired U.S. Marine Corps officer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, Cliff holds a doctorate in organization and management with a specialization in leadership. Cliff now lives with his wife and ten-year-old daughter in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he is a writer, consultant, and leadership coach.
Thank you for joining me Cliff. I am looking forward to the conversations ahead.
