In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

What does it mean earn a seat at the table rather than expect an invite?

Staring defense! Place at the table!

When you hear the phrase, “seat at the table”, what pops into your head first? Is it Lattimer head bashing windows in the documentary, The Program? Awesome scene, but the guy cost Joe Kane’s team some W’s. Now add the keyword EARN as in earn a seat at the table. Does this expand your perspective to something like King Arthur’s knights? A round table shaped so all are seen as trustworthy and equal, now that is symbolism!
