Carrie chats with Stephen Lease! Stephen and two of his high school friends took a leap and started Goodr, a sunglasses company by runners for runners. They chat all about the company, how to build an awesome company culture, Stephen’s background in running, and why his running is what he calls “moving meditation.”
