TMP #0024 (Chinwags) - The Gift of Craft ft. Les Edgerton

Les Edgerton is a writer. He is also a writing mentor, published author, trauma survivor, father, husband, and human being with a rich and complex past.

As someone capable of preventing and inflicting harm with equal intensity, Les has spent time in the navy as a cryptographer and in prison for burglary. As a bystander, perpetrator, victim, and astute observer, he has dealt with the evil side of the human condition and lived to tell the story. For more about Les, I recommend reading his memoir - Adrenaline Junkie.

This episode, however, is about the genuine spirit and gift that runs through this writer. Because that’s what Les is. I am nervous, curious, excited, and moved by the idea of this conversation. I don’t know what will come up. I’m no expert reader or writer either. But it’s going to be a ride. And I’d love for you to buckle in. Enjoy this conversation with the marvellous enigma that is Les Edgerton. Let’s go.
