C-10 Podcast: C-10 Seniors, Ep. 116

  One of our favorite nights on the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program calendar happened recently. It’s when we invite the next year’s cohort of students to come to a session and see what C-10’s about. As part of that, we interview the current seniors to see what they’ve taken from their two to four years in the program. So, this week you’re meet and hear from five of this year’s seven seniors: Alissa from … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Mandy Shoemaker, Ep. 115

For those who’ve met her in the last 10 years or so, Mandy Shoemaker is an entrepreneur. And rightly so. In 2013, she and her sister-in-law Michala Gibson founded Prairie Elder Care, which provides residential care in a unique setting for people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. And then last year they launched Connectivities, a subscription-based service that provides boxes of supplies for activities to help build connections for families and other caregivers for people … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Ryan Lefebvre, Ep. 114

Periodically since February, we’ve been introducing you to the remarkable people featured in the new book, “One Good Thing.” This week, you’re going to “meet” Ryan Lefebvre. We’re putting “meet” in quotation marks because although you likely know Ryan’s work as a Royals broadcaster for 25 years, you’re going to hear a different side of Ryan in this conversation, as we chat about race, how George Brett’s brother helped Ryan get his first real glove, … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Sandra Olivas, Ep. 113

Sandra Olivas is a Kansas City lifer. She grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, went to the University of Kansas, spent a brief time with a TV station in Topeka, Kansas, before coming home and becoming one of the top reporters for KCTV-5. Sandra spent about 14 years at the station. But then her family, through the tragic death of her mom in a car accident caused by a high-speed police chase, altered her career. … Read more

C-10 Podcast: C-10 Students, Ep. 112

One of the most interesting sessions we do with our C-10 students is what we call “student podcast night.” We started this last school year as a way to encourage the students to listen to the C-10 podcast with more intentionality. Here’s how it works. We pick four students and they each pick a different episode of the C-10 Podcast. They listen to it, pick a 30-90-second segment that speaks to them the most, and … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Ray Jarrett, Ep. 111

Periodically on this podcast since February, we’ve been introducing you folks who have turned doing “one good thing” into life-changing experiences and moments for people in the Kansas City community (and beyond).

C-10 Podcast: Cynthia Boles, Ep. 109

  This week, we’re turning over the interviewing to Dr. Max Utsler, our C-10 Curriculum Coordinator, who, like this week’s guest, spent several years in television before going into a second career. In Max’s case, that was about 40 years as a journalism professor. For this week’s guest, it was television and into public relations. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. See, as we close out International Women’s Month, it seemed like a perfect time … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Mike Thomas, Ep. 108

  With the NCAA men’s basketball tournament happening right now — and the championship of the NAIA national tournament being crowned last weekend — this seems like a great time to chat with this week’s guest. But, frankly, it was just by happenstance that we even found out that he played basketball collegiately. See, we know him as the Chief Operating Officer at Operation Breakthrough, an organization in Kansas City, Missouri that does incredible work … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Rex and Jennifer Hudler, Ep. 107

  Every couple of weeks you’ve been hearing more about the new book, “One Good Thing,” and, specifically, hearing from the remarkable people featured in the book.

(If you’d like more information about the book, you can go to OneGoodThingBook.com….or click on the link below. So far in this occasional series, you’ve heard from … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Lina Baquero and Lenin Guerra, Ep. 106

As you may know — as we’ve mentioned on previous episodes — one early goal of this podcast was to introduce you to the great leaders who speak to our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership group once a month. Another early goal was to introduce you to the incredible mentors in the C-10 program. Well, this week, we’re combining both. Several months ago, C-10 Curriculum Committee Chair — and occasional guest host of the C-10 Podcast … Read more

C-10 Podcast: Chris Moeller, Ep. 104

  As we do about once a month, we take part of an interview with a guest speaker with our C-10 Mentoring & Leadership students and mentors and turn it into a podcast episode. After all, the guests we bring in to speak to that group are either great leaders in their fields — people who can teach us all about leadership — or people with stories that can inspire us. This week, you get … Read more

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
