While we give our guests a summer break, Pioneers and Pathfinders will release three recap episodes in August with highlights from our first 22 episodes. In each recap, Steve will share some of his favorite moments from the podcast so far, and some thoughts from his own journey that were triggered by the conversations with our guests.

For our first recap, we explore the topic of innovation itselfa concept that came up frequently, given our focus on pioneers and pathfinders.
