"When the Sodexo Healthcare team decided to venture into podcasting to complement and amplify our thought leadership strategy I needed to find a  company who could hold our hand throughout the process and ensure we produced a professional and engaging product. Obie & Ax was an obvious choice. A lot of companies say they can do podcasting – but this is all this team does – and they do it really well. They were collaborative, patient with us as we found our way, and helped us build a podcast series that has been more successful than we expected. From finding the right intro music to putting our guest speakers at ease the team was creative, supportive, and professional."

"As a DEIA leader/practitioner I am so excited about all the creative and innovative ways Obie & Ax’s podcasts allow you to take your program/company to the next level. As you are focused on the day to day, to have someone do end-to-end production of podcasts that you can use for things such as heritage month celebrations, recruitment, and personal stories, to name a few is amazing! It really does open the door for how we do business, and to do it smartly. I am so enjoying working with this world class team, who truly are the best in the business."

"As per LinkedIn post - Several years ago, I met someone through LinkedIn who has now become a good friend. Meet Andy “Obie” O’Brien. Andy has been an advocate for helping law enforcement with their communication strategy in addition to his very successful entrepreneurial career. This week we hosted him with media coordinators from LAPD and LASD, and had a great conversation on how to reach the public we serve using podcasts. Something I would have never imagined was how people would get their news. So much for my one-way pager with the news feed!"
