Welcome to Pilgrim Radio. Pilgrim Radio is a series of conversations, interviews, and playlists with personalities within the Pilgrim community. Today we have writer, journalist, filmmaker, and former pro surfer Jamie Brisick joining us. Jamie will have an ongoing series with us here, and you can also find him on his blog, Wrestling Elephants, where he publishes snippets of his memoir as well as interviews with characters he meets.
