The Other Side Podcast

Colin and Judith McCartney are your quintessential “opposites attract” couple. He’s big picture, she’s personal; he’s innovative, she’s operational; he gets people to jump on board, she gets people to stay on board.

With ‘The Other Side’, Colin and Judith and special guests invite us to listen to those who may not share our opinion on hot topics. Prepare to be stretched and challenged, all in love, because where would we be without it?
