New “vodcast” format aimed at drivers and transportation & logistics professionals

Kristina Mossgraber, COO of the Rochester, NY Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, recently joined host Dwayne Knepper and Leonard’s Express CEO Ken Johnson for a candid conversation on mental health awareness.

FARMINGTON, NEW YORK, AUGUST 15, 2022 – Leonard’s Express – a leading transportation services provider offering refrigerated trucking, dry van, warehousing, and freight brokerage services – is relaunching Leading the Way at Leonard’s, a podcast that originated in 2020. The reboot of the show includes a shift from audio only to a new video “vodcast” format. Leonard’s is also expanding the content to address the interests of external audiences, a pivot from its original goal to attract employees only. The show covers a wide range of topics that impact the trucking industry such as fleet safety, technology and maintenance, environmental sustainability, fuel efficiency, mental health awareness, and related businesses such as warehousing and brokerage services.  


“The original podcast was so well received by our drivers that we decided to expand it significantly,” said Leonard’s Express CEO Ken Johnson. “We hope this enhanced format will be a primary source of information and best practices for the audiences we reach.”


The new Leading the Way at Leonard’s podcast features interviews with outside guests, including industry experts, leaders of trade associations, and conversations that appeal to anyone interested in the freight-hauling business. The show continues to be hosted by Leonard’s Express Risk Control Manager Dwayne Knepper, whose career includes 13 years as a driver. “I’m excited to continue as host of the podcast,” Knepper said. “We’ll have something for everybody, with content that’s practical, entertaining, and designed to help our viewers find new pathways to success.”


Eight episodes are now available on the Leonard’s Express YouTube channel and on media players including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Podbean. New episodes are scheduled for release every two weeks.
