About the SHOW

The Michigan Show That Brings You Inspiring Stories Every Week!

Host, Cliff Duvernois

Hello! My name is Cliff

I never dreamed this show would take me anywhere …

What started as a hobby soon blossomed into something very special.  A way for me to share these incredible stories I have been hearing with the people of Michigan.

And now I’m on a quest to capture all of these inspiring stories.

And bring them to you, Michigander.


This show started as “The Call of Leadership” in 2019

But when I sat down to interview people, I became much more interested in their stories.

How did they achieve their definition of success? What obstacles did they have to overcome? How did they persevere? And what can we learned from this?

The Big Leap

Thanks to a God-thing, doors opened. Starting in 2023, the show made the big leap onto the radio!

My vision to have every Michigander hear this show is taking another step forward.

Back Story

2016 would mark the first time I sat in front of a microphone and did my first interview. I lived in California at the time and started my show based on my marketing mentors advice.

What I did not understand at that time was just how powerful podcasting could be.

Inspired Mission

At the end of 2019, I moved back to Michigan. I did not know many people, outside of immediate friends and family.

Through watching a sermon online (because Covid shut down the world), the pastor asked a simple question.

“Are you an Ephesians 4:29 person?”

“Do not let any unwholesome talk comes out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29

Podcasting inspired me. I thought, “Why not start a podcast for Michigan where I interview top business and thought leaders?”

I wanted to be inspired. Also I know there are others out there that look for inspiration. So why not take the lessons learned and share them with other Michiganders? Not someone from New York City or Los Angeles. But people who shop at the same groceries stores we do; who drive the same roads we do; their kids go to the same schools that our kids go to.
