Comic Nostalgia

This has made me chuckle so many times. I went to high school with Dan, but I didn’t know him at all. It’s fun to hear that he had a “normal” childhood in a setting where I’m familiar with street names.

I now also have an almost dead brother. Too many times he’s been right on that precipice. And then he backs away. I need to have and record similar conversations with his friends and kids before he crosses that final finish line.

Good job Knight family. This is memorable.

Truly Heartwarming

Such a fun time listening to these guys. I loved the honesty and bravery and loving nature of this family. I hope Sam can get over all the health problems he’s had and truly conquer his demons. I love how this podcast shows the power of love and forgiveness. Great job guys!
