About The Show

Lay of The Land is a podcast telling the stories of entrepreneurship and builders in Cleveland and throughout Northeast Ohio. Every week, we spotlight the story of an incredible local builder — founders, chefs, artists, investors, community builders, politicians — and plot a piece of the Cleveland and Greater NEO map,  to provide a lay of the land.


Through narrative interviews, Jeffrey dives into the nitty-gritty of what it is to build something and the unfettered reflections of those leading the way.


For Jeffrey's perspective on Lay of The Land, Cleveland/NEO's startup & business ecosystem, and entrepreneurship at large, listen to his personal episodes:
