When Everyone Leads: The Podcast

The Kansas Leadership Center recently published a national best-seller called When Everyone Leads. This book inspires us, but how do people actually put these ideas into practice? How do these ideas apply to civic issues?

Tune in every other week to hear co-hosts Chris Green and Brianna Griffin in conversation with special guests about what is possible when everyone leads.


Trustworthy information that energizes civic engagement. Common ground not just differences. A culture of respect for differing viewpoints. Fearless efforts to highlight civic challenges.

The Journal does it differently. Find out more about why we do what we do.
