Rob George, a Baylor Law School graduate, moved to Corpus Christi in 2015. He now practices law with Kevin Liles and Stuart White at Liles White PLLC as the firm’s appellate lawyer. But when he is out of the office, Rob George hosts HECHO, a local hit podcast that highlights the wonderful people shaping the exciting future of the Coastal Bend. The mission behind HECHO is to highlight those who are creating businesses here in South Texas. 

HECHO launched in March 2019, and ever since, George has used the podcast to spread the word about the interesting people he meets who are building amazing businesses or hobbies — bringing attention to Corpus Christi as a wonderful place for people to live, work and play. “HECHO is a way to help celebrate the individuals and businesses who are already doing so, and hopefully to encourage others to do the same,” said George.

George conducts his groundbreaking interviews anywhere his guests are. He has recorded in conference rooms, streetside, at The Gold Fish on Mesquite St. and even in someone’s garage. A particularly memorable interview was done on the stage of the Ritz Theatre on North Chaparral St. 

“HECHO’s main goal is to celebrate our local creators, makers, doers and builders to not only drive more business or exposure to them, but to also show others that they too can create, make, do and build here in Corpus,” said George. For him, HECHO is all about creators sharing what they’re passionate about and the ways they are influencing the Coastal Bend. His hope to inspire others to do the same seems to be coming true, with hundreds of listeners tuning in.
