Brian Part 2: Growing Up A Child of Hoarders

Brian Part 2:  Growing Up A Child of Hoarders

In our last episode, Brian Bouffard gave us a lot of great information about what is happening with the detainees in our facilities at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.  As a military law expert and criminal defense attorney, he's come a long way from his upbringing as a child of hoarders.

In this episode, Brian talks about his childhood - and the trauma he endured growing up in a hoarder house.  While he says he hasn't 'overcome' it, he's in a state of 'overcoming' it. It's something that requires some professional help and introspection.  He began journaling - and later turned to writing poetry to help him though his lifelong journey of overcoming this.  

On Saturday, Dec 11, I'll release  the episode which includes a reading of his epic poem "Escape Velocity".  You won't want to miss this.
