Sports physician, attorney and previous guest Lynn Marie Morski (from episode 40) returns to the Transform U, but this time she’s the Host! That’s because Transform U’s guest for this week is none other than its usual host, Nick Murphy. It’s episode 50—a big number for any podcast—and to celebrate this milestone Nick is opening up a bit more about himself, what drives him, and what he values.
In this special episode, Nick takes a stab at the Rapid Fire questions he usually asks his guests, explains how he reckons with the complexities of the people he admires, and relates a very amusing anecdote regarding a certain president.
