Anthony takes some time during Thanksgiving to reflect on his past and our present, and the ever-present need for gratitude in our lives. He explores some of his own struggles, and looks for ways to be thankful even when the world around us look bleak.
Solo Climb #8 is brought to you in part by generous donations from our listeners Gladio, Bermudan Reactionary, Hueless Joe Jackson, Burgess the Burgher, Maximin DuMas, and Will (the Thrill). If you would like to sponsor an episode of Ascending the Tower, e-mail survivingbabel AT gmail.
