SR Pod/Vod Series: Author B.J. Hollars

Bj Hollars - realToday on the SR pod/vod cast, we’re proud to feature B.J. Hollars sharing reflections about his recently-released book, From the Mouths of Dogs: What Our Pets Teach Us about Life, Death, and Being Human.

Touching and reminiscent as it walks through past and present childhoods gifted with family pets, B.J.’s podcast “Counting Down Dog Years” brings lost moments of time into the present and, comfortingly, reminds us that this – the soon-to-be past – will help to create the future.

You can listen to the podcast on our iTunes Channel.

You can read B.J. Hollar’s work in Superstition Review, Issues 6 and 10, as well as his guest posts on the SR blog.
