On the first half of today’s show Tom and Nick skip over weekends and personal stories and jump right into the state America finds herself in. We talk about the insurrection, the only president #NotTomsPresident to be impeached twice and why all the insurrectionist’s should be considered terrorists. Nick gives a shout out to a Gay Representative from NY Sean Patrick Maloney, who was ready to stand up and fight the MAGA mob.
On the second half of the show the boys are joined by Hans M Hirschi to catch up and chat about his new book “Matt – More Than Words”. This book provides the reader an empathic and enlightening view point for those with disabilities, while also including important concepts and stereotypes the LGBTQ+ community face. We also chat about a project Hans worked on with his son “The Vampire Who Lost Her Fangs”, his newest children’s book about kids who are facing that important milestone of growing up.
About Our Guest
About The Book
This book is written by one of our favorite reoccurring guest and author, Hans M. Hirschi and narrated by Michael Bakkensen.
…being locked inside your own body, unable to move at will, unable to speak your mind.
Born prematurely and with complications at birth, twenty-three-year-old Matthew Walker is neurologically injured and diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy. Unable to speak or voluntarily move his limbs, Matt depends on around-the-clock care and has never said a word—most people, including his mother, assume he never will. Then one day, Timmy, a new assistant to Matt’s care team, is sitting at the breakfast table with Matt when he notices a couple of regular taps from Matt’s right big toe. Has Matt finally found a way to break out of his involuntary prison?
Matt–More Than Words is the story of a life without that which most of us take for granted: the ability to communicate. It is a story of suffering, abuse, loneliness, family, friendship, love, hope, and—finally—a green light, a future.
