Dr. Pat, a Language Arts teacher, college professor, and longtime friend of the pod is here to join me in carpe-ing this diem as we suck the marrow and meaning out of 1988’s coming of age classic, Dead Poets Society starring Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, and Robert Sean Leonard.
From the films, literature, classmates, and teachers that changed our lives, to the emergence of the American teenager, we talk generational divides, coming of age, finding our voices, and the courage it takes to make our lives extraordinary.
