For Episode 17 of the Outstanding Ohioans show, I had the pleasure of interview Don and Tracy Popp, a father-daughter combination who own and operate Don Popp Honey in Hamilton, Ohio.
Don began keeping bees in 1995 and the business has shown spectacular growth. Last year, Don Popp honey produced 95,000 pounds of honey from 500 hives. The product is known for its high quality and does not last long on the shelves in stores like Jungle Jim’s and Krogers.
Here are some of the highlights from the show:
Learn about the importance of bees to mankind, and why there is cause for concern with the declining populations.

For episode 50, I had the pleasure of interview Ryan Hawk, who hosts an incredible, highly rated podcast called “The Learning Leader Show“. Ryan is an amazing business leader who shares his message in many ways.
For starters, we have a new logo for the show, designed by Miami University graduate David Allen Burns (’16). I knew David from working with him at the Miami University Rec Center, where he did an outstanding job helping to run our aquatic operations. Thank you David!
As intended, the purpose of this show is to share the great success stories of Ohioans doing remarkable things in their communities of varying sizes. Through the wide range of guests, the common traits I have heard are the following:
