I usually feel pretty self-conscious writing these intros. Writing anything, really. But after talking to Paul and getting to understand how he approaches writing, language, and creativity, I’m feeling much better.
An educator gifted with almost mystical levels of patience (he did my show, after all), I was lucky enough to meet Paul through an after school program that Page 15 was running. Luckily for us, not so much for them, my son and his friend pretty much had Paul to themselves, and they loved it.
It seems appropriate to reflect on what I learned from this interview. A lot about how trauma affects the brain. A different way to approach writing (reps versus content). How to be a great guest, really listening and answering questions thoughtfully.
Listen, it’s good stuff. I’m a better person for having heard it. You likely will be too.
