Shark Farmer Podcast – Fran Feekes, Strength and Courage

For two and a half years now, I’ve been recording as the SharkFarmer. Between the 2 podcast and the radio show I’ve interviewed roughly 300 people.
People’s stories constantly amaze me, and it’s beyond humbling when they open up their lives for the rest of us to hear.
People always ask which one is my favorite… a question I avoid. I will say, the interview with Matt Chambers resonated with people in a way that I didn’t think would ever be replicated.

Then I met Fran Feekus…

I found myself in disbelief for most of this interview. How can someone so young be so damn strong? How is she able to share her story with no anger or remorse?
I look at this young lady and find myself wanting to be more like her. This is the first part of a 2 part podcast.
So please… listen, laugh, and yes, most likely shed a tear.
