My guest today is Bernie Mitchell, the founder of OuiShare Radio. OuiShare is a podcast network that focuses on various topics.

Bernie manages a remote team that creates seven shows for the network. He tells me how he built his team and the qualities he looks for in a new team member. We discuss the network format and the challenges that unique format causes. Bernie also explains how he and his team develop new content for the network.
