#209 Today s Boondoggle with Poet and Musician, Ryan Kent


In this episode Bill talks with Poet, Author, and Musician, Ryan Kent. We talk about the skate and music scene in Richmond, the authors and poets he’s found inspiration from, how writing has been like therapy and journaling for him, how he ended up in the band Gritter, how his writing and recovery has gotten him through some severe depression and personal losses, and how sobriety has helped his writing and view of the world today. We also talk about the inspiration behind his latest LP Dying Comes with Age, how he ended up working with Jimmy Bower and Randy Blythe to name a few of the people on this project, Rare Bird Books Label support of this project and storytelling concept, stepping outside our comfort zone and negative self-talk, plus so much more.
