Paul Samuel Dolman is the author of the bestselling “Hitchhiking with Larry David,” and has hosted his singular “What Matters Most” podcast for nine years. When he asked me to be on after having read “Ink from the Pen: A Prison Memoir”, I immediately checked out his previous guests, and am honored to be among a remarkable set of intellectuals, academics and spiritual luminaries.
Paul allowed me to go off on a tangent or two, but I tried to get back to whatever question he was asking. All in all, it was a great experience and I hope a listen worth your time.

For anyone curious about why anyone might want to interview me, a little primer of me and my story:
