    Excellent episode. Bess is an excellent speaker. Most of us have no idea what hard work and perseverance are. This is my first time to listen. I will be back.

    I LOVED THIS PODCAST, ANDY! Whether it be Vess talking about work ethic or his life in general, I thoroughly enjoyed this interview! Vess's take on the Cowboy culture was SO insightful, and I laughed my head off when he told us about a certain look he'd get from his uncles, and what that look meant. His mule poem is hilarious.
