Each week we bring you the best stories from around the Wabash community. From professors and alumni, to coaches, administrators, and current students, the podcast format allows for longer, more in-depth, open discussion about the issues surrounding Wabash College. Verging on inspirational, it’s our job to find, and sometimes uncover, the amazing stories that surface from individuals whose lives have been positively enriched from being at Wabash.

Recently inaugurated President Gregory D. Hess sits down with Chet Turnbough '14.  As the 16th president of Wabash, Dr. Hess comes to us at a pivotal time in Wabash history.  A professional economist and academic, Dr. Hess discusses his life choices surrounding his decision to study economics, as well as his interest in the humanities.  He explains what the ‘Simple Gifts’ really are, and we dive into some wonderful conversation about the role of the liberal arts for men, Wabash’s unique position as an all-male college, and we discuss some of Dr. Hess’s lesser-known stories.
