It is with great sadness I repost the most recent TBS in honor of my great friend Zak Godwin, who was killed yesterday by a hit-and-run driver in Nashville. I am so glad we got to do this show on his adventures in Peru. He was so passionate about the relationships he cultivated by the people of Peru. He was also a fantastic musician. Zak was a great person that will be missed greatly. Love you, Zak. RIP Zak.
