Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Author Wendy Willis Baldwin.When Pearl was just a kid, her mother was imprisoned for manslaughter. Her “perfect” sister, Ruby, grew up and left Pearl behind, fleeing to a new city and recreating herself. Now, still living in the childhood home in which her mother committed the crime, Pearl is struggling with her weight—a frustrating daily obstacle that becomes a life-threatening diagnosis—and she commits to bariatric surgery. Surprisingly, Ruby agrees to return and help Pearl during the recovery period. While Pearl thought losing the weight would be the key to her new life, she begins to realize she will never be able to step into her future if she and her sister can’t reconnect and work together to put past trauma behind them. Inspired by the real-life experience of the author Wendy Willis Baldwin and her sister this is an uplifting and powerful story about two women taking their lives into their own hands. She is the co-host of the podcast, Life After Fat Pants.Kathryn also interviews Author Bob Wilber. As the son of a major league baseball player and a former baseball player himself, author Bob Wilber drew upon his own background to tell us a story that is just as much about the game of life as it is about sports. He writes in the distinct, first-person voices of the two main characters — gifted baseball player Brooks Bennett from Southern California and undersized hockey player Eric Olson from Minnesota — to immerse readers in every thought and emotion of the two main characters. Set against the backdrop of real places, real events and familiar names, he follows the characters as they each navigate the triumphs and heartaches of reaching the pinnacles of their respective sports. He brings us a story that will appeal to sports fans as well as anyone who appreciates an inspiring story of personal growth and perseverance. He is the son of major league player Del Wilber and has played in minor league baseball for the Detroit Tigers and the Oakland A’s.
