Widower poet Barry Johnson returns!
I first met Barry when we recorded about a year ago. Just four months before we recorded, Barry was almost dead. Three months before that recording, Barry’s life was saved by a liver transplant.
In this episode,
Barry makes a confession—I urge you to listen with compassion and empathy.
Barry bares his heart about his depression-where it comes from-rough stuff.
Is Barry still pissed at God?
How work helps Barry cope. Barry reads his poem.
And Barry’s personal demon: being unworthy of love.
And lots more.
Thanks for listening.
