"So Joey, welcome to the Doug Collins podcast. Yeah, man, thanks for having me on. It's a good time. Most people might not know this. Informal setting here I like to just sort of give the man behind or the women behind the scenes that you and I met in a really unique way. You were working at the time down in a place helping veterans, but you were working with Zach brown's project down in Georgia. Tell us, for that matter, I just sort of how we got to me, but tell us about that project, because that was a really interesting project that Zach had working on down there. Yeah, you know, it's funny. Most people in the country don't know who our congressional representatives are. You know, and I don't mean that in any kind of way, just we might know who the person that represents us is. And we know who the dozen or more that kind of get headlines on TV are, but we don't know all 435 members. And so when I worked at the camp, anytime anyone that smelled like a politician would come around and they'd be like, hey Joe, you got to be here today because we don't know who we're supposed to like this guy. Do we not like this guy? Like how's this work? 'cause they're not very political people over there. But that's really the beauty in it. And so it was really neat that the day you came and visited camp, I got to be there and meet your firsthand and really develop a friendship from that point on. But the purpose of what we were doing there camp southern ground is I mean, we could talk for a whole podcast on it, but really to bring it down. Zach Brown, the country, superstar at this point. Got his start in music from one of the first things he did in music was he was at a camp a summer camp and somebody handed him a guitar and he said, you know, maybe I can learn how to play this. In about ten years after that, he was a young teenager, and he would go back to campus a counselor. And he realized, or they kind of sawing him, he had a kind of a special touch or a personality that he was able to work with the kids with special needs. And he realized music was an easy way or an easier way to connect with those kids because standard communication of talking and body language did not work with all of them. And so he understood kind of this healing power. He calls it remedy and he has a song about it of music, but he also understood the greater infrastructure of having a camp in immersive camp, a camp for kids with special needs could go to school or go to camp with kids that didn't have special needs. So we built camp selling ground, raises the money. It's a $100 million project. He wants it to last for a hundred years. And does all this. And he brings me on board the work there. I actually worked for his business first and then the camp. And he said, hey, man, kids can only go to school four months a year. I need to use this in a meaningful way. The other 6 months that we can use it, and I know that doesn't add up to 12, but you gotta take a month or two off every now and then. And he says, you know, how can I help veterans? Because that's the other thing in my life. It's been a big influence to
