I love dan and now you can too!
Dan is a really funny and cool writer. And he's just as good a reader. You should check him out, fools!
Celver, inventive, and original. The humor in this podast is more than contrived. Enoy the witty banter and feed your head.
Witty, humorous, insightful, touching, and always genuine, Dan delivers consistency great podcasts while promoting his portfilio of great writing and poetry. Personal or profane, Dan's world view has been formed from the trials and tribulations of life as a teacher, poet, son, husband, friend, and father. Always thought provoking and entertaining for all! Highly recommended.
