Trent Podskalan is a motivational speaker from Grand Rapids and the founder of the podcast “Trent Speaks”. He has had a passion for people and hearing their stories since senior year of high school when he became involved in a program called Peer Assisted Listeners (PALS). Since creating his podcast in February of 2018, Podskalan has had people on there to share their stories. It’s become an outlet for everyone to speak, including Podskalan himself.
“Vulnerability is the strength of our weakness.” Trent Podskalan
Podskalan said that while the most difficult part about his career has been starting, the far more rewarding part is the impact he has left and the people he has met along the way. When asked about where he anticipates this journey taking him, he said his goal is to “continue going to high schools and colleges and sharing (his) message with others…to show people it’s okay to not be okay and to be open about the struggles they may be experiencing”.
