Episode 25 - All The Feels; Children's Books - This episode is dedicated to the memory of Douglas A. Ploss who passed away in 2014. Not only was Doug, David's grandfather, he was also a wonderful illustrator, author and cartoonist. David talks about Doug's book, "The 'Tweens at Deep Lake" which is spoken of right alongside some other wondeful titles! It's a rather emotional segment for David, as he is still in the process of greiving the loss of his beloved grandfather.

Please honor his memory by purchasing a copy of his amazing fantasy story through lulu.com here:
