Close to You - Episode 14

If there's one thing we've learned since March 2020, it's that humans need human contact. When we're feeling alone or disconnected, stories help bridge that gap and bring us closer together. Stories are also essential to memory and legacy and help us celebrate what we love about the people who are no longer with us. 
In this episode are two joyful stories of remembrance. The first from Chuck McMahon, Content Director of Tiny Bully agency in NH, author and former reporter, who talks about becoming a father in a way I rarely hear men do. The second story is from Jessica Bacon, a long-time Long Story Short participant who honors her brother on what would have been his 49th birthday with a collage of stories about his mischievous spirit and love for cars. If you appreciate classic vehicles, you've gotta catch this one.
