Ben Witte started with Proof Of The Pudding in 1992. 27 years later, he is VP and a part owner. In that time, Proof has grown to be one of the most successful catering companies in the Southeast. You’ve most likely dined on their food at a sporting event or work gathering in recent months.

Ben comes on the show and answers questions almost – mostly seriously for a little over an hour. He’s got a great outlook on business and life and I promise you will be entertained.

Daniel Pollard HXV Atlanta

I sat down with Atlanta DJ and Producer HxV and had an inspiring and emotional conversation.  He grew up fast, spinning in clubs by age 15, and heavily abusing alcohol and drugs. He was immersed in a dangerous lifestyle that led to dysfunctional relationships and near-death overdoses.

He got sober in 2012 and his career flourished. He toured the world and collaborated with artists like T.I. , Diplo, Lil Jon, and The Weeknd.

The unexpected turn of events in this episode was retelling the search for his friend Nilan, AKA SpeakerFoxx, in December of last year.
