I choke down the most humble lessons, in this, my epic tale of woe and ash rising as I pursue my passionate dream — interviewing the King of All Podcasters, Cliff Ravenscraft, at the New Media Expo. Like Dorothy, in her quest for the wizard, along the way I meet Sandra Payne, an empathetic video director who had her own year of adventure, Gina Carr and Terry Brock who stepped up with the knowledge of Klout and kindness, Mike Mataluni, a Kick Ass podcaster, who offered up courage and encouragement, and other kindred souls who lifted me up after the most major f-up a podcaster can face! My fake son, Steve, and the Wonderful Mark, both chime in as they finally hear the terrible tale of what went down and cheer about the final lessons taught by my relentless, clueless pursuit of a dream.
