This is a Must Listen!

I’ve known Jeff for a few years and I knew he was special, but I had no idea that he is one of 2% of people on earth that have this condition. He’s an amazing story-teller, full of interesting factoids and is incredibly thoughtful and funny. Listen to this guy. I promise you will not be disappointed. If you are, come at me!
