In this episode, I talk with Harrison Scott Key and I have to say, I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so much during an interview before. If you’re a dreamer and looking for something to help you along your journey, this is the episode for you. Also, if you’re just looking for a good laugh and need a little lightness in your day, we’ve got you covered.

A little about Harrison, he is the author of two books—Congratulations, Who Are You Again? and The World's Largest Man, winner of the Thurber Prize for American Humor. He has spoken at TEDx and hundreds of book festivals, conferences, and universities around the nation. Harrison's humor and nonfiction have appeared in The Best American Travel Writing, Oxford American, Outside, The New York Times, The Bitter Southerner, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Town & Country, The Mockingbird, Salon, Savannah Magazine, Reader's Digest, Image, Southern Living, Gulf Coast, Creative Nonfiction, and more. He holds an M.F.A. in creative nonfiction and a Ph.D. in playwriting and works at SCAD, where he has held appointments as chair of liberal arts, professor of English, professor of writing, and executive dean. He lives in Savannah, Georgia, with wife and children.

I first found Harrison through is TedX Talk (linked below) which I highly recommend checking out. I was immediately drawn to his sense of humor and honesty about what it takes to follow your dreams. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I clearly enjoyed recording it.
