Robert Alden Welbourn.

If you’ve been following this program for any length of time, you know that is has no format and blurs the line between information and entertainment. In keeping with that theme of having no theme, we welcome the most interesting man in the world, patriarch and father of PA founder, Robert Alden Welbourn.

That’s right. This week John’s dad is here to talk about, well basically, everything. In this episode, Mr. Welbourn takes us through the Welbourn genealogy, the history since the dawn of man, and throws in some thought provoking pearls of wisdom for good measure.

We all thought this podcast would prove to be just another fad, like the internet, or pockets. Despite our having initial reservations about it’s potential for success, we are grateful for the roughly tens of millions of listeners who tune in every week. And with that, I bring you this, the 200th episode of Power Athlete Radio.


200 Episodes in and still shamelessly promoting ourselves. Remember that to truly incorporate the Power Athlete Methodology, you need to wrap your mind around the science. With the Power Athlete Academy, you’ll be able to confidently apply our training systems and even create your based on the knowledge you’ll gain from this comprehensive course. Guaranteed to make you smarter and better looking, the academy will challenge the old noodle and promote an almost offense degree of vascularity.

    I believe there’s a gym out in Austin called atomic athlete that runs a camp or something where they teach shooting, making fires and how to kill and gut an animal.

    Mr Welbourn should have his own podcast. He is as easy to listen to as Garrison Keiller. Really enjoyed this episode and calling out highlights of the first 200. Would be interested in a blog post listing the crew’s top 10 shows.
