"Hey Chris, this is Whitney. I love the podcast! You should come visit me in the pyramid next time you're in Montana."

It had been four decades since I'd heard from Whitney Lake, who was a legend at Cazenovia High School in 1979-80. His reputation for brilliant disruption greeted me when I moved to town, halfway through senior year. He still excels at brilliant disruption.

Dude is mad smart, funny, charming, and generous. And his BBQ sauce is amazing! Learn more about his work at
