vc pod mission

Julie and Rick decided to start the victory couch podcast to have an outlet for their collective voices.  The victory couch is meant to be a fun and insightful landing space, where this uniquely matched couple relives their work days, parenthood, responsibilities, side projects, and faith with realism, humor and authenticity. We welcome you here on the victory couch, and hope you get something from the pod you can apply to your everyday life.
