Michael Carlon is the host of the Uncorking a Story podcast (http://mikecarlon.com/podcast/) which features depth interviews with people making a difference in the world today. In addition, he is the author of Return to Casa Grande, Uncorking a Murder, Winning Streak, The Last Homily, All the F*cks I Cannot Give, and Motel California.

He is an expert at understanding what makes people tick and translating those insights into intelligence his clients can use to make better business decisions.
Mike lives in Stamford, CT with his wife Nicole and their teenage triplets Grace, Patrick, and Maggie. He holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Connecticut and an MBA with a concentration in marketing from Fairfield University.
