C-10 Podcast: Friday Flashback-Len Dawson, Ep. 102

  Earlier this week, my wife, who spent the first 28 years of her life outside the Midwest, saw a social media post about the Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl and it referenced No. 16. And she asked me, “Who’s number 16?” That was Len Dawson, I told her. She knows enough about football and Chiefs’ greats — and has lived in Kansas City — long enough to know Len Dawson was one of … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Jeremiah Enna, Ep. 101

If you follow us on social media, you may remember around this time of the year, we take our C-10 students and mentors to an incredibly moving production called “Underground” at the Kauffman Center here in Kansas City. It’s put on by the Culture House and Störling Dance Theater. It’s a dance interpretation of a story of three runaway slaves seeking refuge in the Underground Railroad. This week’s interview is with one of the main … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Avery Van Zee, Wilderness Trek, Ep. 99

Welcome to episode 99 of the C-10 Podcast. This episode is one of our most unique episodes of the previous 98…or one of our most unlikely guests. Here’s why. Typically, we’re talking with people who have been in leadership roles with companies, or have been around great leaders throughout their adult lives. However, this week’s guest will show you that age doesn’t matter. And, as importantly, great leaders can be found in unique places. As … Read more

  C You In The Major Leagues Founder and Board President Dayton Moore and CYITML Executive Director (and C-10 Podcast host) Matt Fulks were chatting on January 2, 2023 about the new year, and they started talking about the podcast.

But as Dayton and Matt talked, … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dan Britton on One Word, Ep. 97

  This is episode 97 of the C-10 Podcast, and with December 31st in our sights, this is the last episode of 2022. What’s the significance of those two things? Well, they’re both tied to this week’s guest. First off, this week’s guest, Dan Britton, happens to be the same person who joined us for episode 94 about a month ago. The second part of that — and the reason he’s joining us so soon … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Matt Fulks, Ep. 96

  As we do once a month or so, this C-10 conversation features an interview that took place in front of our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership students and mentors. But this episode, our 96th, is unlike any other we’ve done. During many of our recent weekly C-10 sessions, we’ve been using the mentors to show the students that they don’t have to have the rest of their lives figured out right now; that many times, … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Andriy Kravtsov, Ep 93

Imagine not only going out of town, but going out of the country. And after just a day or two of being in this foreign country, war breaks out in your hometown. And it’s not safe for you to go back. Suddenly, you’re in a foreign country, all of your friends are halfway around the world, much of your family is halfway around the world, and all you have possessions-wise are the clothes and whatever … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dan Deeble, Ep. 92

  Have you gone through a career change, perhaps by your own choosing, as we saw coming out of Covid, or by a company downsizing? As a leader, have you ever felt stuck?

Early in his career, Dan Deeble was the Marketing Director for McDonald’s of Santa Barbara. He had a … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Be The One, Ep. 91

  This is episode 91 of the C-10 Podcast. The only reason we tell you that is because this will be unlike any of the previous 90 episodes in terms of content and length. Our first 90 episodes — and our future episodes — are interviews with leaders and/or people who have been influenced by great leaders. For the past seven or eight days, something has been on the mind of host Matt Fulks, so … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Dave Heller, Ep. 89

  Typically with this podcast, we focus on leaders and great mentors in Kansas City, or formerly of this community. Well, this week we’re going outside of the area, but it’s someone with ties here. Of sorts. This week we’re joined by Dave Heller, the owner of the Royals’ high-A affiliate, the Quad Cities River Bandits. He and his group, Main Street Baseball, have owned multiple minor-league teams. So we’ll talk a little baseball. Dave … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Casey Wright, Ep. 88

  This week we’re chatting with Casey Wright, president of Chief of Staff Kansas City, a staffing firm in Kansas City. Casey, who’s been in recruiting most of his career, is a great fit for our C word this week, COACH.

Chief of Staff KC is a … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Paul Talley, Wilderness Trek, Ep. 87

C-10 Podcast: Mentors, Ep. 86

  After spending time with a few of our C-10 seniors in the previous episode, we wanted to give you a chance to hear from four of the mentors in the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program. During one of our sessions in April, when a guest speaker had to postpone because of a family emergency, we called on these four mentors to talk on the stage in front of all of the students and other … Read more
