My guest today is Ben Weldon. He’s a great guy, formidable in his stature as well as his intellect. Our genesis story begins with grade school. We played sports together and of course had many classes. He is a marine biologist in south MS, now working on a PhD. His interests are broad, but they all seem to be originating in the spirit of continual self-improvement. He’s a power-lifter and novice swimmer. Ben also began a journey into the art of smoking food. Lately, he found interest in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All this with a PhD program demanding his time. Ben and I talk about his hobbies and other topics as well. I really felt as though I gained something from him. Amazing people will do that to you. I really enjoyed catching up with Ben Today. I hope you enjoy the show!
