Lacy walks and talks with her boss, Porter Wilson, Executive Director of the Employees Retirement System of Texas (ERS), as he hikes the hills of his northwest Austin neighborhood. Porter describes how his physical activity has had to change over the years and how he uses music as his fuel. How did a musician and Capitol Tour guide find himself as the leader of a state agency decades later? What does health and wellness even have to do with a retirement system? Find out more about this and about the big changes the legislature made to our retirement plan recently in this 30-minute episode.
Porter's Spotify handle is pmwilson000 and the playlist he uses is titled "Running."
