The Episode Where We Interview The Coolest Author On The Planet: Jason Reynolds
Colby: Jason Reynolds may be the coolest person I have ever met. Interviewing him was nerve racking and inspiring. We talked about his National Book Award Finalist book Ghost. Jason and I discussed his career, his mentors, and his fascination with The Guinness Book of World Records.
My favorite part of the episode comes at the very end. Make sure you listen to the very end. The last question comes after the credits. I appreciate Jason helping me become a better man.
I didn’t mention it in the episode, but I got to interview Jason Reynolds in a pretty amazing room.
