Craig explains his decision and thanks some folks as well as promotes his other podcast that isn’t going anywhere, Matinee Heroes.

The Introverted Leader 2nd Edition

Jennifer Kahnweiler (@JennKahnweiler on Twitter) returns to talk to host Craig Price about the 2nd edition of her book “The Introverted Leader“.

Longtime listeners will remember Jennifer from Episode 180 back in 2015 when she came on the podcast to discuss introverts. This time she’s back and she’s updated her book  “The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength” to include new information, clarify past entries and expand on how introverts can communicate in extroverted environments. Jennifer and Craig talk about reactions to the 1st edition, what Jennifer has learned over the past 10 years since the book came out and how Jennifer thinks Craig became a “Californian” overnight!

You can learn more about Jennifer at her website and you can buy her book at Amazon and bookstores everywhere.

The Big Book of Apps

Beth Ziesenis (@NerdyBFF on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss her latest project “The Big Book of Apps“.

It’s an app filled world and we’re just living in it. But how do you know if an app is worth the space on your phone? How do you find apps, which apps are important and which apps are the most popular? Craig doesn’t know. The only app he’s concerned with it the Reality Check Podcast app! Thankfully, our nerdy best friend Beth Ziesenis is here with her book to zero in on apps that are worth your time, do what you need them to do and won’t cause problems with your security.

You can learn more about Beth at and get her book “The Big Book of Apps” on Amazon and other retailers today!
