My guest for podcast #152 is Matt Stewart and we are talking about his book The Walk-On: Inside Northwestern’s Rise From Cellar Dweller To Big Ten Champ. Matt and I are both graduates of Northwestern University. While he played football on a championship team, I was on the field as a marching band drummer. There are a lot of football stories in the book, but our podcast focuses on the lifelong leadership lessons that come from the rise of Northwestern’s program – how do we motivate people to tackle seemingly insurmountable challenges?
