Inside the Trenches is an interactive show that brings the best out of people. We go inside the trenches to find the best stories from individuals all across the globe and bring it to life. We allow our guests open up and talk from their hearts about triumphs and overcoming adversities in their lives. How you got there and what are you doing to stay there.
You can be a part of the show. You can select the topics for the show, and our special guests. Let us know “what’s good in your neck of the wood. So we can say “what part of the game is this.”
