And it shows when you hear him speak of the methodology, how he analyzes movement, or watch him interact with people in class daily.

319. Ben Smith: Life of a Writer behind Hulu's "Only Murders In The Building", and "Meet Cute"
Ben is a TV writer from Lexington, MA. Writing wasn't always the plan. First it was 'professional basketball player' (too short), then 'doctor' (too hard), then 'diplomat' (took a bad class in college and moved on, perhaps too quickly), and finally 'perpetual graduate student' (too expensive). Writing and comedy were always passions though; he just didn't realize they could be combined into an actual job until mid-college. Since moving to LA in 2012, he's worked on a range of shows -- spanning network, cable, and streaming. Most recently he served as a Co-EP on Hulu's "Only Murders In The Building." He's also written and directed a short film, "Meet Cute." Outside of writing, Ben enjoys rock climbing, sports, role-playing games, and relaxing with his girlfriend and their two cats (Fox and Scully).

Ben Smith the self acclaimed 'white battler', who has gone on to be one the the greatest outside backs of this generation. For the Highlanders, he is right up there with the best to ever pull on the Jersey. Playing in Highlanders colours 153 times, which included Co-Captaining them to the 2015 Super Rugby title. He also played a huge part in the All Blacks success in the same year helping them to the RWC victory! Off the field the man they call Bender (not actually for his bender ability) is such a lad, so highly respected by his team mates and you can see why. I throughly enjoyed this episode and the exciting thing is he is not done yet so watch this space. If you enjoy this episode, please give it a share, I do really appreciate anyone who is helping spread the word.

237: Less is More as Surly’s Ben Smith Pursues Bigger Hop Flavor in Hazy IPA and a Refined Approach to West Coast IPA
Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine Podcast
Minnesota's Surly Brewing has cultivated a brand image that's bold and in-your-face, but the next chapter of Surly's approach to brewing will be defined by achieving more with less, if head brewer Ben Smith has anything to say about it. From thiol-maximizing yeast in hazy IPAs that achieves big flavor with less hops, to refined and softer bitterness in new West coast IPAs, every assumption about how things "should be done" is under consideration. In this episode, Smith shares what they've learned from brewing a new thiol-focused beer with Other Half, Phantasm, and thiol-centric yeast from Omega Labs. But it wouldn't be a proper Surly episode without a discussion of West coast IPA and the ways they're tweaking and refining the classic approach to find new expression and connection. In this episode, Smith discusses: Maximizing their three pillars of quality, consistency, and stability Achieving more hop flavor with less hops and thiolized yeast Thinking about bitterness in terms beyond IBU Hopping methods to achieve flavorful and efficient results Deconstructing and reconstructing West coast IPA Managing hop creep at a production scale And more.
