Genealogy Education: The Genealogy Guys Podcast

http://genealogyguys.com/

Genealogy Guys is a podcast by George G. Morgan and Drew Smith.  Episodes include news updates from genealogy companies and organizations, listener email, book reviews, and interviews of genealogy speakers and other professionals.  

My favorite episodes are the interviews of genealogy speakers where each one is asked about their origin story or how they got started in tracing their family history as well as when did they began doing genealogy speaking. 

There are plenty of podcasts and topics to choose from at http://genealogyguys.com/. Podcasts can be downloaded to any computer device or phone or listened to on Apple Podcasts, Tunein, Stitcher, or Google Play for your convenience.
