When I started this podcast I had a list of people I wanted on the show. On that list was George Seay. It’s very appropriate that the grandson of former Governor of Texas and larger than life figure Bill Clements is the subject of Episode 50. While George will readily admit he has benefited from his bloodline, there can be no doubt George Seay has been a worthy steward of the responsibility entrusted to him.
From our first electronic exchange through the course of our podcast interview George Seay exhibits nothing but humility, intelligence and a sense of responsibility. This was such a great conversation, and it was an honor to spend time with George. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed preparing it for you.
