In this episode Beowulf opens up about a very hard year that started with loss, peaked with a relapse, and rounded out with more loss. He gives us an inside look at what feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom looks like, and how multiple forms of therapy, volunteer work and doing what he loved brought him back out to where he is today.
His story is filled with laughter, heartache, triumph and just plain being human. We even cover the downfalls of 1099 vs. W2 for all of you freelancers out there! I love getting to interview funny people but even more so when they are my friends. I hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as we enjoyed having it!

Beowulf is from Canada and likes cats.
PROVIDING TRANSCRIPTS FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED
When I initially set out to do this podcast, I knew it was important to make it accessible to everyone whether they had excellent hearing or not. I believe accessibility is important and that those who speak sign language simply speak a different language than we do. Truth be told, getting transcripts done and then editing them and preparing them for the show notes is just too much for me to take on on top of producing and editing this podcast. At least right now.
So I want to ask for your help.
If you’d like to contribute to making this podcast accessible to all, you can become a member through Patreon. The approximate cost for transcriptions (no editing, just transcribing) each month is around $150 for two episodes. With different membership levels I know we can collectively make this happen and bring these conversations to more than those of us who were blessed with good hearing.
