Dave and I are back in the studio, and we’ve brought along a friend—Joel J. Miller, Chief Content Officer of Michael Hyatt & Company. Dave and Joel are old pals, having worked together at another publisher back in the day, so listen in as they reminisce, while discuss:

  • Joel’s career in publishing (and what he misses from his time in the industry)
  • One of the authors Joel really regrets working with (but it’s cool for him to share this since the dude he mentions went to jail for defrauding his congregation)
  • What are some good books to read to help someone understand the Eastern Orthodox faith
  • Joel’s near-encounter with Owen Wilson
  • What were the most controversial and/or fun books Joel worked on
  • The resurgence of the library
  • The importance of editors
  • Our hot takes on Star Wars

Plus, a challenge for our listeners: One of you needs to find a copy of this movie and send it to Dave. (Send it to us via work: 1 LifeWay Plaza, Nashville TN, 37234)
