Brad Biehl is a Columbus, Ohio, native studying entrepreneurship and nonprofit leadership at ASU. Outside of school, he leads a podcast titled “More Than a Word.” In each episode Brad and a guest embark on an organic, conversational journey surrounding a singular word. He says the podcast’s purpose is to help evoke vulnerability, spark self-awareness and provoke process. This thesis is echoed throughout his life, including his creative work for professional soccer player Amobi Okugo at the media company A Frugal Athlete. In his free time, he takes long walks, listens to others and asks good questions (to both himself and others) in the name of vulnerability.
