Episode 86: Ted Lyde


Listen Online:


Some find actor / comedian / filmmaker Ted Lyde’s honesty about being a parent refreshing, some find it off-putting. Ted talks about the sacrafices and compromise as a father and husband, that lead him to state, “I don’t recommend it and I wouldn’t do it again.”   He also opens up about his disabled son who was born with Muscular Ataxia.    Paul reads an email from a listener who found last week’s episode anything but inspiring.
