Buddy has always been interested in learning from others and teaching others so a podcast is a great place for him to learn from the guests and help the listeners grow and learn at the same time. 

Buddy has been asking “too many questions” since he was seven according to his paternal grandfather and namesake.  40 years later it is paying dividends and we hope you enjoy the journey of where these podcasts go.
