Standing on the Shoulders is a podcast about giants. Not the kind you run into in fairytales...but the more metaphorical, inspirational kind - whose symbolic shoulders you can stand on to reach greater heights. Across each episode Aleks Krotoski chats to innovators and visionaries about what they’ve learned from inspirational giants that shaped their lives.
 
An inspirational podcast about how we were never meant to be common. There are giants among us who have figured out how to be uncommon and inspire greatness. Each episode is a narrated journey about how they started “incredible” out of nothing, or how they broke the status quo, or faced down adversity, or took the road less traveled. "If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants." The Podcast is hosted by Tinotenda Charles Rutanhira -- @tcrutan -- www.tcrutanhira.com
