It appears that this time, there’s actually a chance for change. This was too important a situation to let pass by, so we wanted to address it on this podcast, through the eyes of several prominent African-American leaders in the Cutco/Vector community. Buddy Boyd and Greg Cothran are the highest-ranking African-American leaders in the company, both Division Managers. Kenny Coleman is a key proponent of diversity & inclusion, and an expert at bringing people together. This is an informative and encouraging conversation about George Floyd, race relations, and the reasons for hope in the future.

Beautiful Work Podcast
Dan hosts a lively conversation all things bourbon with Kenny Coleman and Ryan Cecil, the hosts and creators of the #1 Bourbon podcast, Bourbon Pursuit. The guys retrace their steps of building their successful podcast, give their views on the current whiskey industry, and play a fun game of "Overrated or Underrated."
On this episode I’m speaking with a fellow podcaster, Kenny Coleman, who is a co-host of the Bourbon Pursuit podcast. I really enjoyed having a chance to talk with another podcaster, and we definitely talk about how Kenny and his co-host, Ryan, met and ultimately started their show. But from there we focused on Kenny, his experience from the University of Kentucky to today, and how his relationship with bourbon has changed over time. Kenny has some really good stories that he shared, and great perspective on the bourbon industry and how it’s changing. I hope you guys enjoy this one, cheers!
