The Best Storyteller in Texas
Kent Hance (Texas Tech University, 1965) launched a new podcast, Kent Hance: The Best Storyteller in Texas, where he shares the most colorful stories from his life as a lawyer, a U.S. Congressman and a university chancellor, along with some hilarious anecdotes about growing up in a small, west Texas town.
Episode #6 features the very first guest on the show, former chairman and CEO of General Motors and AT&T Ed Whitacre (Texas Tech University, 1964). Hance and Whitacre have been buddies since their college days, which makes this conversation extra special and a lot of fun to listen to.
This podcast episode, which is part one of a two-part series, dives into Whitacre's life and career, the risks he’s taken, the biggest deal he’s ever made and some of the most important lessons he learned on his way up.
