Friend of the show Will Parnell is no stranger to the problems of civilization, but he recently was given a front row seat to the shit show. After years of faithful and competent service as a librarian, he was laid off – blindsided and humiliated along the way. How is our intrepid friend handling this blow to the nuts? With calm reflection, positivity, and class. We all know on some level or another that we live in an irredeemable system. By hearing the process by which someone redirects his efforts against all odds, we might all find hope and inspiration for a better way forward. Will has lived 42 years in this system but his true life’s journey begins now, and he has been gracious enough to allow us to walk it with him. Thanks, Chilly Willy!
