The Way Bobby Hears It

The Way Bobby Hears It

By Bobby McMullen
Like everyone, our lives are unique and made up of moments that are both good and bad, that have made us cry and to cheer, moments of success and failure, of fear and strength, but our lives are made up of moments.

These moments have brought experiences, and more importantly people into our lives. When people ask how I overcome and move forward, despite what are a unique combination of life circumstances I blame my parents and the people who surround me.

People all too often look past who they are and identify with what they do. This podcast is about the people in my life and who they are.
