Subject – Into My Father’s Wake

Author – Eric Best with special guest Ken French

This week’s show is dedicated to fathers. As a special guest, I spoke to my own dad over the phone about the importance and lessons of teaching reading to children and the important role dads play in early childhood development. I then interview Eric Best, who is a very accomplished writer, journalist, and entrepreneur. His most recent publication, Into My Father’s Wake, records Eric’s 5000-mile solo sail as he struggles to come to terms with a recent divorce, solitude at sea and the impact of his powerful father in his life.
