Podcasting as a medium is quickly becoming one of the US’s most popular formats for consuming news and other stories, making it an effective platform for distributing messages of all kinds. Some studies have shown that nearly 130 million people identify as regular podcast listeners, which rivals traditional radio.
Jacobs has chosen to capitalize on the popularity of podcasts by creating MoxieTalk, a platform he uses to spread positivity and inspiration. His program is available on many streaming services, including Spotify, TuneIn, Stitcher, Audible, Amazon Music, etc.
Whitney Austin is the ideal guest for Jacob’s show, given her history of overcoming adversity to inspire others and her devotion to education and activism. A survivor of gun violence herself, she has established initiatives in Kentucky and Ohio, focusing on finding fact-based, scientific approaches to reducing gun crime.

One guest said after appearing on the show, “Kirt is a master at weaving together personal and professional questions in a seamless flow of relaxed conversation that truly reflected who I was and how I got there. I would encourage anyone with a story to share to join him for a conversation.”
