About this Episode

I revisit some of the dicey decisions I made in my early 20s, and as my son prepares to head off to college, I wonder how I can help him not do the same. Along the way I touch on the burrito buggy, selling plasma, drink-and-drown, quad night at the Junction, French class, spring training, hoodoos at the Grand Canyon, taco eating contests, getting lost,saying cool beans, 8 am classes, Whoppers, Ogre and Mrs. Ogre, the London tube, french fries and the only truth I can seem to grasp after 25 years of beating myself up over one bad choice made in a hot basement corridor.
