Here is a link to our recent podcast on Behind the Uniform.

I’m so humbled and honored to have Wesley Gray on the show today, talking about his experience building Alpha Architect. I found Wes through a Wall Street Journal article that starts with: “Wesley Gray’s value-focused fund of overseas stocks is beating all its rivals over the past year. For him, it’s almost beside the point.” There are so many reasons to listen to today’s episode…I think you’ll find Wes’ experience motivating and inspiring.
