Stuart Watson had a problem. After three decades as a Charlotte TV investigative journalist, he found himself fired and without a job. To make matters worse, his own wife was telling him he was a terrible listener.

After some soul searching he found a new passion in life - listening and sharing the stories of everyday women in North Carolina who have overcome adversity. It's the focus of his podcast, ManListening.

In this bonus episode of Tying it Together with Tim Boyum, we talk with Stuart and one of his guests, Stacie Pompili-Towe, about the importance of listening.
