For the first time in Why I Social history, this week's podcast features not one, but two guests! Cody and Katie Stevenson. 

The pair is a married couple who I've had the pleasure of getting to know (as well as host at my house for a BBQ earlier this summer). They're perhaps best known for some of their great travel stories which caught my attention early on. 

Both are proficient in social media as a relationship building platform. Most recently, Cody launched his own podcast (Big Rigs and Pancakes) which focuses on conversations and getting to know people. It's the anti-social, Why I Social, and it's fantastic. 

This Week On Why I Social, Cody, Katie and I talk about:

  • Starting a podcast
  • Traveling across the country
  • ...and of course, how they met.

Get To Know Cody and Katie

Albert Qian (@albertqian) is Global Marketing and Communications Manager at Ingram Micro located in Silicon Valley. His list of experiences and jobs showcase his unique set of skills and his networking capabilities. I first encountered Albert while being a guest on MCEOTalk (on the same episode as him) and immediately found myself fascinated by what he was doing.

His work, in particular on a project called Albert's List, truly put other people first. It was an innovative use of social media that deserved attention. Quite frankly, I wanted to learn more. On this episode of Why I Social, you'll learn more along with me.

This Week On Why I Social, Amanda and I talk about:

  • How failure led to success
  • Living in the Silicon Valley
  • Albert's List

Amanda Pensack (@RoxyDigital) is marketing director at ECM Solutions in North Carolina. Her career includes stints as a social media and digital producer for WSOC-TV as well as founder of Roxy Digital - to name a few. She's a real go-getter who's career focus should take her a long way.

Perhaps what interested me most about Amanda is her involvement with Social Roadtrip - which was also mentioned on episode 29 with Joel Renner - and her passion for connecting people. Her energy and interest in helping others build relationship immediately drew my attention. 

This Week On Why I Social, Amanda and I talk about:

  • Improv acting
  • Being a millennial
  • Social Roadtrip

A few weeks ago, I began asking you, the listener to tell me your favorite #WhyISocial moment. Just three weeks later, I've put together a collection of all the moments you included (or as many of them as I could).

It wasn't enough, however, to include just your favorite moments. I wanted to include YOU. Each moment is introduced to you by the person whom suggested it so you'll hear first-hand why it's been recommended!

So, sit back and enjoy YOUR favorite moments and if yours isn't included take a moment to use #WhyISocial to share it after the podcast is over.

Fan Favorites include:

  • Casie Shimansky
  • Carlos Gil
  • Tim McDonald
  • Ted Rubin
