Ben went through what most transitioning veterans go through, the feeling of needing to redefine their identity outside of the structure of the military and rediscovering your passion and purpose for life. A seminar changed it all for him and allowed him to discover his passion for leadership and helping other veterans and Dads be the best parents they can. Since that seminar he has been on a mission to master leadership principles and use his passion for leadership to help dads understand who they are, develop their skills to overcome adversity, and to own their life choices to enable them to truly come home to their families.

Chris Saunders

Chris Saunders

Audio Editor

Chris has been in audio production since he was a kid. After spending time learning the ins and outs of digital audio while recording his own music, he started recording and editing music that friends were writing. He first discovered podcasts in 2013 and immediately started his own, very short-lived show, but realized his production skills could help in a more thought out and polished podcast. It wasn’t until 2018 that he put that to the test, hosting a highly successful show about one of his favorite horror series. He stepped away 2 years later, handing the reins to a co-host, but continued to help other podcasters set up and produce their own podcasts. In 2019, he started looking for paid editing work and connected with Mathew at the Podcast Consultant and has been editing for him ever since.
