It’s been a helluva year for Bring It In, 1Huddle’s original podcast for motivated, curious people looking to discover new strategies, perspectives, and insights from the world’s best CEOs, coaches, educators, elected officials and entrepreneurs.
We’ve been busy – with more than 30 interviews performed in 2022 alone, looking back, as we near our hundredth episode, it’s incredible to think of all the wonderful conversations we’ve had and the sheer variety of experts we’ve had the opportunity to consult.
And so, in honor of 2023 we’ve put together all of our favorite episodes from this past year, so all you have to do to level-up, is listen in.
This was one of our favorite conversations this year!
Tammy Browning is President of KellyOCG, a global leader that manages all categories of talent to drive strategic growth for clients worldwide – and the company that coined the term “Boss Loss.”

Talk about a smart dude!
On this Bring It In podcast episode, 1Huddle’s CEO and Founder Sam Caucci sat down with Justin Reich, author of Failure to Disrupt: Why Technology Alone Can’t Transform Education. Reich is also an associate professor of digital media, as well as the Director of the Teaching Systems Lab at MIT.
On this episode Justin sat down with Sam to discuss how teachers learn, why he thinks “tinkers” will succeed where those who aim to be transformative have not, and the critical role private sector companies can play by partnering with public schools.
22X National Champ…yes, we said 22.
Anson Dorrance is the Head Coach of the Women’s Soccer Program at the University of North Carolina.

On this episode of Bring It In season three, Anson sat down with Sam and discussed ranking your players, setting standards and core values, and surrounding criticism with love and care.
Kent Babb is a sports writer for The Washington Post and acclaimed author of Across the River: Life, Death, and Football in an American City and Not A Game: The Incredible Rise and Unthinkable Fall of Allen Iverson.
In this conversation with Sam, Babb discusses investing in your players as individuals, the stigma surrounding mental health, and the importance of communication as a leader.
Think it’s impossible to complete and pass a 4 year MIT course, in just 1 year?
Not for Scott Young.

On this episode of Bring It In season three, Scott sat down with Sam to discuss the concept of desirable difficulty, retrieval practices, and effective feedback.
Barbara Oakley is a former Army Captain and professor of engineering at Oakland University and McMaster University. Her online courses on learning are some of the most popular MOOC classes in the world.
In this episode, Barbara sat down with us to discuss online and classroom learning, the difficulty of changing minds, and unequal education opportunities.
“Character is when words and action match.”
That’s one of our favorite quotes from this very memorable episode of Bring It In, where 1Huddle CEO and Founder Sam Caucci sits down with Coach Melissa Kutcher, the Head Women’s Gymnastics Coach at the University of Denver.
She is a 6x regional coach of the year, and a 2x Big 12 conference coach of the year!
Melissa and Sam cover everything from embracing failure, how to be a genuine and authentic coach– and, of course, the importance of character.
Want to learn about cognitive psychology that affects teachers and students?
Then this is the episode for you!
Jim Lang has delivered conference keynotes and conducted workshops at more than a hundred colleges, universities, and high schools in the United States and abroad. The Jim Lang Foundation, which he formed and leads with his wife, provides grants to non-profit organizations dedicated to alleviating poverty; supporting and funding the arts, libraries and public education. He has written six books in total. His latest is, “Distracted: Why Students Can’t Focus and What You Can Do About It” (Basic Books, 2020).
His book, “Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning,” emerged from that work, and since its publication in 2016, its message – premised on the idea that teachers, by implementing small, manageable techniques, could revolutionize the way students learn– has been embraced by higher and secondary education faculty around the world.
On this Bring It In podcast episode, we sat down with Dara Torres, a 12x Olympic medalist, and former world record-holder in three events, to discuss her latest book, Age Is Just a Number: Achieve Your Dreams at Any Stage in Your Life, trusting your coach, and what makes the differences between good practice and bad practice.
On this very special episode of Bring It In, we talked with Jerry Lynch, founder and director of Way of Champions. He’s worked with over 115 championship teams, consulted 12 Hall of Fame coaches – including Steve Kerr, friend of the pod Anson Dorrance, and Phil Jackson— and is the author of over a dozen books, including Way of Champions, The Competitive Buddha, and his latest, Everyday Champion Wisdom.
We discuss winning the “relationship game,” and how your thoughts control your being.
