The Builder's Journey

Aug 19, 2020

Considering 2020 has been a wild one, it’s only appropriate that there is a fire that is raining ash down on Eagle County and those surrounding it. Alex’s guest today is Todd Lieb, a colleague of Alex’s that worked as a heavy equipment operator right out of college. Todd spent the last 3 years working as an English teacher in Colombia, teaching as a second language as well as literature and advanced writing. Unfortunately, Todd was forced to come home because of COVID and now has to deal with the ongoing Grizzly Creek Fire!


In this episode, Alex and Todd talk about…

  • Diving into Todd’s education and time as a teacher in South America
  • Operating heavy equipment for the town of Vail
  • The Grizzly Creek Fire is destructive and moving fast
  • Travel time has been changed because of the fire
  • Alex actually works, he swears by it
  • Tackling suicide prevention through Rescue Run
  • Todd is an attractive and available bachelor for all fans
  • Rough jokes with Todd and Alex; they’re here all weeks folks
  • Old technology that is still in use to this day
