On this week's podcast I catch up with Doc to talk about his new game KnifeTank, his upcoming, life in San Francisco, chiptune and his day job at WordPress.

Andrew's big heart

Andrew brought out the best in Pat's life and now in his death. He also brought out the best in this conversation. Thank you, Andrew, for sharing grief with me, Pat's mom

Dear Andrew

Pat’s mom sent me a link to this podcast. For those of us with children – and especially – for those of us with children who have struggled with issues of being different . . . feeling unable to reveal their true selves . . . and more, this podcast sheds a precious light on the multiplicity of our worlds, our lives, our journeys, and our selves. Such a precious gift, summed up by Pat’s mom in this podcast - “They were the children teaching the mother about the son.”

What a wonderful gift you provide by interviewing his mom and sharing the song “Twenty-Three”.

Thank you
Sandra
