Magic and Murder, Freedom Over and Over: Nicole Glover and Dora Alexander on The Backpack Show

Episode Description

Magic and Murder, Freedom Over and Over: On this episode of The Backpack Show with Chris Brogan and Kerry O'Shea Gorgone, we'll talk with novelist Nicole Glover. She's coming to talk about her forthcoming book, The Conductors, a tale of magic and murder in post Civil War Philadelphia. We’ll also talk about how Nicole's psychology degree prepared her for a writing career and her work as a UX researcher.

Dora Alexander joins us to tell us a real life tale with so many twists and turns. Dora grew up number 6 of 8 kids in an old order commune in Pennsylvania, until she ran away from home in the back of a semi-truck. Dora launched the “Targeted Acts of Generosity” program during COVID.

AND she’s created an incredible homestead for her family outside of Toronto complete with farm animals, a sugar shack, dairy goats and several zip lines. So, a lot to cover.
