At the beginning of 2021, the Club and District Support team for the Americas (CDS Americas) began hosting a monthly podcast titled: "All Things Rotary".

The objective of this podcast is to bring together voices from around the Rotary world to find a new approach to All Things Rotary and tackle questions and issues that Rotarians ask and hear about the most.

Each episode is hosted by Club and District Support Associate Officer Nick Taylor, and features Rotarians from around the world addressing relevant topics and giving their own perspectives and experiences.
Below is a summary of each episode to date and links to listen in to them:
