When I contacted Francis during the recording process to make sure I was pronouncing his last name correctly, he told me it was like Roberto Clemente, so we got to have a nice baseball bonding moment. A great story to kick off this most original episode.

Francis DiClemente lives in Syracuse, New York, where he works as a video producer. He writes in his spare time and is the author of three poetry collections. His blog can be found at

Happy listening,
