On this episode I sat with previous podcast guest Matt Hangen to discus his incredible fitness transformation. Matt is the CEO of Water4 and on a previous podcast talked about his incredible journey to becoming CEO of Water4. A charity that builds wells and provides clean water to those in need in Africa. 

Matt was sent back to the states after contracting so many diseases from the very water he was trying to protect people from. Which set his body on a severe path of destruction. Matt went from being unable to walk to competing in a number of endurance races. Running, biking and swimming his body and mind back to health.

Matt is currently training for his next big run. The 80mile double loop of Mount Hood. This Saturday! Head to www.water4.org to donate!

Making bog moves recently with the announcement of the Cox Convention Center being used as a location to build sets for shows etc. But enough from me. Enjoy this episode and the future that is Prairie Surf Media.

This is Miller Pecan Co

October 9, 2020

On this episode I chatted with Jared Miller to talk his family pecan business which is one of the very few full service locations from tree to table Pecan making business. 

About.

From the river bottoms and creek beds of Northeast Oklahoma, the Miller family is proud to provide environmentally responsible, delicious, nutritious, locally-grown pecans for families, five-star restaurants, gourmet candy-makers and specialty bakeries all across the United States.  

With their father, Len, brothers Justin and Jared Miller began growing and harvesting pecans in the mid-1980s. As their passions evolved, the Miller brothers desired to carry on their father's legacy in pecan production, as well as expand into other areas of the pecan processing business. 

From first building a custom cleaning facility in a nearby Kansas town, to constructing harvesting facilities in Miami, Oklahoma to landing a home in Afton, Oklahoma, the family business has continued to grow and evolve into an even more surreal embodiment of their father's pecan dream. 

Today, Miller Pecan Company is one of the only producers in the United States to handle their pecans from planting, grafting and harvesting to cleaning, shelling and marketing, allowing them to deliver unforgettable quality to their customers every single day.

October 2, 2020

On this episode I chatted with Luxury realtor and Rock music enthusiast Wyatt Poindexter. Like the majority of self made entrepreneurs Wyatt's story consists of hard work, risk taking and always raising the bar when marketing a luxury home. The best part of this podcast though was diving into Wyatt's absolute addiction to Rock music. In particular U2. He's grown a business from his lifelong passion called Treasured Rock. If you've seen someone play live or listened to rock music at all. Wyatt has probably had that artists memorabilia through his business. 

Also he just turned 50 so go with him a Happy Birthday!
